  1. Mar 15, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I want to convert the output of a strain gauge into an equivalent parellel binary word

    2. Relevant equations

    i need to list the process blocks in correct sequence and starting at the strain gauge

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Strain gauge- convert ohms to volts- adc analogue to digital convertor-

    That's pretty much it. You could fill in more details about how your make an accurate voltage from the strain gauge device, and what kind of filtering you should use before the ADC, and more details about the ADC circuit itself. You can use wikipedia.org to learn more about those kinds of devices and systems.
