The use of a load cell or a soft transducer that converts force to resistance. The weights they are considering are up to 10 kg, which produce a force range under gravity of 98.1 N. The data acquisition system available has a range of ± 5V and is 16-bit. Load cell has all gages the same. The cross-sectional area of the link is 4 mm 2 , Vs = 5V, and Sg = 3. Assume the link is made of steel (E = 200x10 9 N/m 2 and n = 0.3). What is the voltage output as a function of the load applied, F (V/N)? What gain, if any, should be used on the signal to best use the range of the data acquisition system? What is the resolution of the complete data acquisition setup in force (N) given the gain selected in (2)?
