Semestr exam and using a force gauges to measure the vibration frequen

  1. Dec 16, 2013 #1
    I need help in below matter. During the classes on my college we used this type of testing stand with force gauges : http://www.qualityforcegauges.com/force-gauges/ Unfortunately the exam is coming in strides and I still don’t know how to measure the vibration frequency. So I’d like to ask you has anyone used similar force gauges to measure the vibration frequency? How to use it to get the right result of measure? Thanks in advance!

    It's real tough to measure frequency with a force gauge. You do realize that frequency and force are two different things.
