    In the circuit for measuring the resistivity of a wire, how would the ammeter and voltmeter connect to the wire. If the distances are set at certain points e.g. 10 lengths going up in 0.1m all the way to 1.0m. Would you connect one crocodile clip coming from the ammeter to one end of the distance required and the other coming from the power supply to the other end and place the voltmeter in parallel to the wire but attached to the crocodile clips coming from the ammeter and power supply?

    I know this is very badly worded but im very tired
    The voltmeter will go in parallel to the component under test, and ammeter will go in series
