Force Measurement

Last Updated: 7/27/18

Teaching Standards:


This module introduces the force sensitive resistor (FSR) which can be used to develop a force probe. Using the force probe, students can record data on different physical phenomena that occur everyday. Additionally, they can graph the applied force to see kinetic friction, static friction, and work.


The presentation material and the code can be downloaded at Force Measurement.
