Free Images – Potentiometer , Variable Resistor , Rheostat
A potentiometer is a three-terminal resistor with element called the “wiper” that forms an adjustable voltage-divider.
The resistance value is changed by moving the contact (wiper) across the resistance track / single-turn potentiometer.

The main picture was taken with a FUJIFILM brand camera, model FinePix S5700 S700 on Saturday 10th April 2010 by the Robert & Mihaela Vicol photographers.
As basic settings, an exposure time of 10/600 (16.667ms ) was used with aperture f/6.8 and the ISO Speed of the camera was 200. Actual focal length of the lens was 1320/100 (13.2mm) with unknown lens model (range).
The actual file size is 2.97 MBytes, resolution is 2304px on the horizontal and 3072px on the vertically and the original (or modified) file name is Potentiometer_83111.jpg (media type is image/jpeg).
The photo original orientation was portret with an X Resolution DPI equal to 72/1 and Y-Resolution DPI equal to 72/1.
Other camera settings (and APEX value) were the lens aperture 550/100, status of flash equal with 9, shutter speed 600/100 and brightness value 540/100 (13.2).
Note: It looks like the current size of the image was changed by rotating the image to another position but the original orientation of the photo remained the same.
