Adjustable Resistors

pAdjustable resistors, also known as potentiometers, allow a degree of control over the resistance within a circuit. This gives them an advantage over other types of a href="https://uk.rs-online.com/web/c/passive-components/fixed-resistors/through-hole-fixed-resistors/" title="https://uk.rs-online.com/web/c/passive-components/fixed-resistors/through-hole-fixed-resistors/"fixed resistor/a, depending on your needs. /p pbr/p pThey are composed of a fixed resistive element, and a slider that is able to pass along the element. This is what changes the resistance of the circuit, and it is usually controlled externally./p pbr/p pstrongWhat are adjustable resistors used for?/strong/p pAdjustable resistors are most commonly used for volume control in TV and radio.
