is an electromechanical transducer which
produces at its output terminals, a voltage
or charge that is proportional to the
acceleration to which it is subjected.
The piezoelectric elements (similar to
small crystals) within the accelerometer
have the property of producing an electrical
charge which is directly proportional
to the strain and thus the applied force
when loaded either in tension, compression
measurement of Acceleration, Angular
Acceleration, Velocity, Position, RPM
or Angular Rate, Frequency, Impulse
and Impulse Energy, Force, Tilt and
Orientation, and Motion Detection.
