All you have to do is google it...
1) the circuit has to have a load on it even if you have to make up a load like using the circuit to power are ground a head light bulb... Voltage drop is the voltage loss in a circuit such as your bad connection at yer alt... Its quick and simple and efficient... I will take luck tho :D
The most common place you will see voltage drops issues are battery connections ( I am sure we have all see this and gonna run into it again)....

Voltage drop can be used on either side positive are negative,,, lets say you put one end of yer meter on the battery positive post and the other on the battery cable end at the bat pluss post,,, you will see 0V's,,, activate the starter and you see 12V's,,, that means you are loosing (dropping) 12V thru the connection,,, its a bad connection the same applies to the ground side... if you do not see a drop on the plus side move to the negative side and repeat the test,,, if you do not have a drop then test from the bat to the load at every connection.... If a FAST way to confirm power and grounds once you get a handle on it...
the longer the circuit is their will be some voltage drop but it would be in the 10's of a volt like .010V.... Google it their lost of info on you tube...

I am self taught and a slow learner I can not blame any info I have posted to be correct are blame anyone else... :lol:
