    Hope that’s ok to ask this sort of question on the forum. Here’s the deal. I’ve been striving to get the hang of the difference between a rheostat and a potentiometer… for a few days now :) I read a bunch of articles on the topic and even watched a video from this page https://www.derf.com/rheostat-overview-article-and-video-explanation/ but … for some reason I still need somebody to explain it to me like I’m 5. Could somebody really dumb down the difference between the devices? Thanks a lot
