What type of resistor has an extremely accurate resistance and can handle high power applications?
A wire-wound resistor.
An axial lead resistor.
A carbon resistor.
What are the three classifications of resistors?
Fixed, tapped, and variable.
Axial lead, tapped, and variable.
Tapped, fixed, and axial lead.
How are tapped resistors manufactured?
Only with fixed taps, designed to offer predetermined resistance values.
Only with adjustable taps, which permit the selection of a desired ohmic value within the range of
With either fixed or adjustable taps.
What does the schematic symbol
Adjustable tapped resistor.
Either an adjustable tapped or a variable resistor.
When a potentiometer is used in a circuit, what does it control?
The current flow in the circuit and act as a voltage divider.
The amount of voltage applied to an electrical device (load) and serve as a voltage divider.
The total resistance between is terminal ends thus serving as a voltage divider.
