Hi,

I would like to calculate the used energy with the accelerometer. Does anyone know how to calculate the used energy (work) from acceleration and body mass?

Remember, work is the area under the force/distance curve.

If force is constant with distance, then the force/distance curve is actually a strait line, so the work is

W=FD

Also, remember that

F=ma
