Hello people of the interweb! In this post i shall be explaining what analog pins are and how to us them. To start things of what is an analog pin? An analog pin can be used to read analog data such as a potentiometer, however they can also be used for much more. How do i use them in my projects? First you will need a potentiometer. Wire the first pin to ground on the arduino. Then wire the second pin to A1. The third pin goes to the +5 volt pin. Now open the arduino ide and go to sketch, examples, and then click on basics. Next you want to select AnalogReadSerial. Upload this sketch to your arduino. Then go to tools and click serial monitor. As you can see when you move the potentiometer the values on the screen change! Hope this helps someone out with their arduino tinkering, excuse mistakes as i am new to blogging. Charlie.
