The Arduino platform is widely used in education of physics to perform a number of different measurements. Teachers and students can build their own instruments using various sensors, the analogue-to-digital converter of the Arduino board and code to calculate and display the result. In several cases this can mean incautious reproduction of what can be found on the Internet and an in-depth understanding can be missing. Here we thoroughly analyse a frequently used resistance measurement method and show demonstration experiments as well to make it clear.
