Lots of discussion regarding stored calibration, stored calibration slope, force, force sensor, collision, calibration, mount, and switch are presented inside the product sheet. The product sheet contains discussion about collision experiments, interface, computer program, sensor, dynamics cart, track, surface, and device.
In this product sheet we can get information around beam, program, instruments, data, dual range, time, experiments, and motion. Below are grabbed from the product sheet:
The Dual-Range Force Sensor is a general-purpose device for measuring pushing and pulling forces. It can be used as a replacement for a hand-held spring scale or mounted on a ring stand. It can also be mounted on a dynamics cart to study collisions. Forces as small as 0.01 newtons and as large as 50 newtons can be measured. The Dual-Range Force Sensor uses strain
gage technology to measure force, based on the bending of a beam. Strain gages att
ached to both sides of the beam change resistance as the beam bends. The strain gage
s are used in a bridge circuit such that a small change in resistance will result in a change in voltage. This voltage change is proportional to the change in force. A switch allows you to select either of two ranges.
In addition, the product sheet explains info such as data collection, strain, second calibration point, lab, software, mounting, and hook.
