On Saturday, I had the privilege of talking to a group of radio amateurs on the topic of electronic measurements. I opened the session with a short discussion of “why do we even need electronic measurements?” This was captured in three “laws” listed below:
Bob’s First Law of Electronic Measurement
With electricity, most of the time we cannot observe what is going on without measuring instruments.
Bob’s Second Law of Electronic Measurement
When we can observe electricity directly, it is often a bad thing.
Bob’s Third Law of Electronic Measurement
Lord Kelvin was right
