What do you call this type of rheostat

  1. What type of rheostat is this and how to use it? How to connect it in a circuit on a breadboard? Must it be connected to another resistor or is it a resistor itself but with the capability of changing its own resistance by turning the screw clockwise/anti-clockwise? I am trying to construct a circuit on NI ELVIS.

  3. No way to know without a part number and datasheet.

    Where did you get it?
     
  4. it is a 10k ohm variable resistor
     
  5. Yep.
