Hi, my group and I are doing an experiment on forces experienced on a baseball. Our setup involves the baseball attached to a motor, which is coupled to a cantilever beam (1/2 inch thick, 7 inch long aluminum rod). The beam has a strain gauge attached to it and we are recording data with labView. Our concern is with the sensitivity of the strain gauge. We don't believe we are going to get any forces greater then 3.5 ounces on the beam. Will the strain gauge measure the very very small deflection from such small forces?
