I hope I am posting in the right area and you guys can help me out. I'm by no means a physics master but have a basic math understanding. Here is the situation I am dealing with at work:

I am building a vibration table (that goes up and down, 900r/min, with a vertical displacement of 0.33") and it needs to have a minimum acceleration of four times gravitational acceleration.

Basically my set up includes a motor (which I can set to 900r/min) that drives a camshaft that moves the table up. The table floats in between compression springs (four on top, four on bottom).

How do I set and measure the gravitational acceleration on this? I'm assuming I could adjust the gravitational acceleration by adjusting the amount of spring compression...??

If anyone has ideas how I can measure and configure gravitational acceleration on this vibration table it would be of much help!

Thanks!

John
