Measuring Potentiometer Resistance Taper

I had some fun measuring the resistance of a linear 10Kohm potentiometer from my junkbox and designated B10K.

I then measured an ALPS 10Kohm pot that is intended for audio applications. P/N RK0971221Z05. The taper for this pot is designated as type 3B by ALPS.
