This applet simulates the inner workings of a galvanometer-based multimeter.  The user can choose whether to measure voltage, current, or resistance, as well as choosing the range to measure, just like a real multimeter.  The applet then connects together the circuit for the user's selections, and draws an equivalent circuit for simplicity.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
