Suppose a fellow wished to buy a high input impedence voltmeter rather

accurate for low voltages (< 10v, say) but not expensive. Any

recommendations?

What do you mean with "high"? Digital multimeters normally have an

input impedance of 10 MOhms; the lowest measuring range is 0.2 volts.

50 Mohms down to 0.01 volts. Is that too much to ask?

A 50 M precision series resistor (probably a series combination),

measuring on the microamp range. You have 1 pA resolution there, which

is 100 uV. You do have to watch the burden voltage, of course.

If you want fairly cheap:

HP 3478A has an input impedance of >100Gohm on it's 3VDC or less ranges.

HP 3456A has an input impedance of >100Gohm on it's 10VDC or less ranges,

but size is a bit large.

You could put a 40M resistor in series and divide the reading by 5.

0.002V x 5 = 0.01V So, I guess you would need a 4-1/2 digit multi meter.

Or is that 3-1/2?
