    Trying to confirm a leakage network with the following specs (picture attached):

    R1= 375 Ω
    R2= 500 Ω
    C1= 0.22 μF

    If its not hooked up to a power source, what should I get when hooking up an ohmmeter(Ω)?:

    A to B =
    A to C =
    C to B =
    C to D = 500Ω
    B to D =

    If you could explain why for each answer that would be great.

    An ohmmeter uses DC, not AC so the capacitor does not affect the measurements of the resistors.
    A and C are the same. Then you simply have two resistors in series.
    Cannonball and wojeezy08 like this.
