That's an "open circuit". No current flows no matter how high the voltage gets.

It doesn't exist in nature.

infinity

Negative infinity plus negative infinity equals negative infinity.

Infinity divided by any finite number is infinity. Here are the rules: 1. Infinity divided by a finite number is infinite (I / f = I); 2. Any finite number divided by infinity is a number infinitesimally larger than, but never equal to, zero (f / I = 1 / I); 3. Infinity divided by infinity is one (I / I = 1), or in fact any other positive number (I / I = and so on...); 4. Infinity multiplied by zero (no infinity) is zero (I * 0 = 0); 5. Infinity divided by a positive finite number is infinity (I / +f = I); 6. Infinity divided by a negative finite number is minus infinity (I / -f = -I); 7. Infinity divided by zero is not possible; 8. Infinity plus infinity is infinity (I + I = I); 9. Zero divided by infinity (nothing divided into infinity) equals zero (0 / I = 0); 10. Infinity plus a finite number is infinity (I + f = I); 11. Infinity minus a finite number is infinity (I - f = I); but 12. Infinity minus infinity, due to the nature of infinity, can be zero, infinity, or minus infinity (I - I = -I, 0, I).

Infinity is a concept, not a number. Even if it were considered such, infinity plus one is also infinity, and so infinity minus one is still infinity.

The resistance goes to infinity.

It isn't. See the answer to your question about a current source.

Infinity

infinity- so that all the voltage is measured across the component instead of losing some in voltometer circuitry

A: As current approaches infinity on a device it is known as a current source.

generally voltmeters are connected in parallel in the circuit.If the voltmeter resistance is lower as it increases the current rating,because by connecting parallel we are decreasing the resistance,so if the voltmeter resistance is not too much higher it leads to burning of the meter,For that we can conclude that the in ideal the voltmeter has infinite resistance.

An infinity reading on a megger typically indicates an open circuit or very high resistance, meaning that the insulation being tested is in good condition. It is not necessarily at '0' or 1000 range, as the exact value may vary depending on the specific megger model and the insulation resistance being measured.

no...... ideal open switch should have a resistance of infinity... the question should be a closed switch http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Will_an_open_switch_record_a_resistance_of_zero_ohms" but this is also false because any good conductor will have a small resistance the connecting wire resistance is exhibitted across the terminals of the switch
