What is a rheostat?

A rheostat is a resistor with variable resistance.There are many type of rheostat,involved of a rotary-type rheostat and a sliding rheostst.I dunn know much about the rotary-type rheostat but I can tell u how does a sliding rheostat work. A sliding rheostst consists of a coil resistance wire wound on a tube and a sliding contact.The sliding contact be moved on the metal bar.Consider of the length of the resistance wire which let electric current through increases,the reistance would be higher and decrease the elctric current.Thus by moving the sliding contact,we can adjust the size of electric current.It's ofter used as a dimmer or to adjustl the voluime of the radio. If you are interested in the rotary-type rheostat,try to find it by yourself!

How does a rheostat works?

A rheostat is a simple variable resistor with two contacts. A resistor is a device designed to resist the flow of electricity. The more resistance an electronic current encounters, the more slowly that current flows. By increasing or decreasing the resistance in a circuit, a rheostat changes the amount of current flowing through that circuit. Most rheostats contain a strip of some substance with fairly high resistance, such as carbon. One of the rheostat's two contacts attaches to the end of the carbon strip. The other moves along the strip as you adjust the rheostat slider or knob. When the sliding contact moves close to the fixed contact, the electric current only has to flow through a little bit of carbon to get from one contact to the other. This creates only a slight resistance. As the contacts get farther apart, however, the electricity has farther to travel along the carbon. This creates greater resistance, slowing down the current.
