1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hi Guys, I know that, when measuring strain using gauges, using a full wheatstone bridge over a half bridge will give you double the sensitivity (Vout = NEGS/4, with N=2 for half and N=4 for full). But why would you use a hald bridge over a full one? What are the advantages? Thanks. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I can think of cost, you only need half the number of gauges.
