Piezoelectric experiment

  • #1
I am currently planning a Piezoelectric "experiment" and need to finish it in 22 days. I have no problem obtaining a clamp and synthesising rochelle salt. However, I need two things. One is something which I could use to measure the force applied to the crystal when tapped and two a cheap oscilloscope for under 100 USD that is sensitive enough to measure the piezo crystal output. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Don't know if there's anything that http://www.omega.com/ has that will help you, but they may give some ideas.

e.g. this from their Force, Acceleration, & Torque tutorial.
