Strain Gauges and Load Cells

Strain Gauge: How a Load Cell Measures Force. Strain Gauge is sometimes misspelled as a strain gage. A strain gauge is a sensor used to measure strain (deformation) on an object. Here's a brief overview of strain gauges: Structure: Typically, it consists of a thin, flexible, insulating backing that supports a metallic foil pattern. The […]

What is Force? An Easy to Understand Explanation

What is Force? In his second law, Sir Isaac Newton stated that force controls motion; therefore, we must control the force if we are to control the motion. An example of force: I have an egg in my hand and want to break it by squeezing it in my hand. This egg will break at […]
