Brief trimmer potentiometer trimpot variable resistor voltage divider circuit fragment

Potentiometers are three terminal/pin devices. Two terminals are the end of a fixed resistive element. Third terminal is a wiper that makes an electrical connection to a variable point along the resistive element.

Affiliate link ad. I really like this kind of trimmer potentiometer (trimpot). I have a 10K from one of my kits. They have pins the size of the leads of other components, so they fit easily into a breadboard. They can be turned by hand or by using a slotted screwdriver.
