linear pots


Recommended Posts

Most potentiometers are linear.

A linear potentiometer's resistance is directly proportional to the wiper's position.

There are also logarithmic potentiometers which is have an exponential/logarithmic (depending on which side of the wiper is being measured) resistance-wiper position relationship and normally only used for volume controls.
