Homework Help: Plotting acceleration vs time graph from accelerometer voltages? SDOF damped free vib

  1. Oct 18, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I have to sketch an acceleration vs time graph, i have the time, and voltage readouts from an accelerometer from two peaks recorded from an oscilloscope.

    I have t1 = 109mS v1=23.45mV and t2= 250mS v2=5.9mV

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    Im guessing that i have to convert the voltages into acceleration and then integrate twice to get displacement? Is that right? And if so how can i get from voltage to acceleration?
