These are Potentiometers...

You can turn them and vary the resistance in a circuit.  They are also called variable resistors, because they change resistance. These little components are like a dimmer switch that can change the amount of electricity in a circuit. 

As surface contact with the wiper and resistive track changes when you turn the dial, the distance that the current must travel through restive material also changes. More distance to travel = more resistance, and that's how it dims electric flow!

Get five of them!

Use them in projects like:

  • Pong
  • Etch-a-sketch
  • Game Controllers
  • Custom Musical Instrument

...and more...
