accelerometer help plzz

hi everybody..i have homework to design accelerometer can anyone help me from where to start i hav no idea about accelerometers know only that it measures acceleration of motors no experience to design..which sensors to use..or where can i find sample circuit diagram of accelerometer?

oh i know about wiki ))) but thanks anyway..vishal007win there is accelerometer with detailed and formulas valid for all types of accelerometers?

Re: accelerometer help plzz

i mean accelerometers used with motors

Re: accelerometer help plzz

as in what is the acceleration limit? what is frequency response?

Is this homework for a high school assignment?

Ah, that explains much. :smile:

So, unfortunately there is no 'accelerometer formulas' (to my knowledge) where you can simply plug in numbers and it spits out values.
