How to Measure Force?

Not open for further replies.


digging up a real old threat there :)

sjaguar13 - did you ever complete this project? I'm also looking into building a sensor to measure forces of karate kicks and punches. Doesn't have to give the actual force value, just a numerical value of some sorts so we can keep records of students progress. Nigel's idea seems to be the best - but what sensor would one even look at - they come in ranges of max psi? How much pressure would a punch exert on the air bag? 1psi...100psi?

Any other pointers/tips would be appreciated.
