Whats the graph of tapers of a pot?

How do u get different Curves from tapers ?

What are some curves from tapers?

Re: Taper of a pot

They are usually linear and log. The log is really a set of straight line approximations. This latter is usually used for audio level control.

Re: Taper of a pot

Is there a way to make a pot taper different? and who ? like put a resistor in parallel on the wiper to the out terminals?

How would i get differerent Taper curves?

Re: Taper of a pot

Walters, try www.google.com. Use the words "taper" and "pot".

Re: Taper of a pot

Most pots are 270 degrees of shaft rotation
so the graph would be resistance VS degrees of shaft rotation

If the resistance is 100K and the shaft degrees is 310 what is the Taper?
If the resistance is 100K and the shaft degrees is 270 what is the Taper?

Whats a Semi Logarithmic Taper? how would it look on a graph?

How do i get a radical "S" taper?

The taper of a pot refers to the way its resistance changes as the shaft is rotated. A linear taper pot is exactly what you would guess it to be, a graph of resistance (from one end to center) versus shaft rotation would be a straight line
