Now, the collar can be used as the third or variable contact. Likewise, a rheostat or potentiometer can be turned into a two-lead variable resistor by shorting out the variable contact point with the lead on either end. The schematic symbol for a resistor, all by itself, tells us nothing about the ohmic value, or anything else about the component such as its power rating or physical construction, either.

Appendix A contains a more complete listing in alphabetic, tabular form. You’ll find it in the back of this book. Resistors Resistors are among the most simple electronic components. As the term implies, they resist the flow of electrical current. The value or “size” of a resistor is measured in units called ohms; typical real-world resistors are rated from about one ohm up to millions of ohms. Less commonly, you’ll encounter resistors with values of less than an ohm, or hundreds of millions (or even billions) of ohms.

In some old radio receivers, you’ll find air-core inductors wound around small waxed cardboard cylinders resembling short lengths of drinking straw. Some hobbyists even use waxed wooden dowels to support “air-core” coils! Figure 3-16 shows the schematic symbol for a tapped air-core inductor; in this case, the coil has two tap points along its length. Fig. 3-16.
