A potentiometer is a resistor that can be mechanically changed. Typically form factors are knobs (turn to change) or sliders. The change of resistance is either linear (resistance changes linear with the angle or distance) or logarithmic.

1 from machine import Pin, ADC 2 from time import sleep 3 pot = ADC(Pin(34)) 4 pot.atten(ADC.ATTN_11DB) 5 while True: 6 pot_value = pot.read() 7 print(pot_value) 8 sleep(0.5)
Here the voltage of Pin 34 is manipulable with the poti:
