    I am looking to construct a platform which tilts and the angle of its rotation to be measured. I know very very little about electronics and cannot figure out how I’d use a potentiometer to read the angle of the tilt (apart from translating its voltage to an angle). Any ones explanation or help would be much appreciated.

    Hi Evan,

    Depending on your exact needs, perhaps look into using a digital rotary encoder in place of a potentiometer? This may give you finer measurements, more consistency, and easier implementation.
