Input Impedance

Voltage Measurement

Most multimeters will have an input impedance of 10Mohm.

This means it will effectively apply a resistance across what you measure of 10Mohm, potentially affecting the measurement if the source has a high impedance

Current Measurement

Will depend on the meter, but it might be say 1ohm for the mA range and say 10mohm for the 10A range.
