State the meaning of absolute instrument and secondary instrument.

Absolute instrument: These are instruments which read quantity under measurement indirectly i.e. in terms of deflection, degrees and meter constant e.g. tangent galvanometer

Secondary instrument: These instruments read the quantity under measurement directly at the time of measurement e.g. ammeter, voltmeter.
