Which type of lamp cannot be checked by performing a continuity test?


Expert Answer

Step 1

In basic terms, the continuity test checks the flow of current in an electrical circuit. The test is performed by setting a little voltage between at least 2 endpoints of the circuit. The flow of current can be confirmed subjectively (for example by watching a light or signal in arrangement with the circuit activates) or quantitatively (for example by utilizing a multimeter to quantify the obstruction between the endpoints).

Step 2

The continuity test is used for the same purpose as the test lamp, but it supplies its own voltage, for the testing of dead circuits. A circuit having a short circuit can be tested by a contin...
