The Acceleration Sensor is a high accuracy accelerometer measuring accelerations from -5 g to +5 g. It measures gravitational forces and acceleration-induced forces in the same way. At rest the sensor measures 1 g when pointing downward, -1 g when pointing upward and zero when positioned horizontally.
The Acceleration Sensor is used in various experiments in Physics both in the lab and outdoors. In the laboratory, the Acceleration Sensor is used to measure accelerations of a moving cart, pendulum, falling bodies, etc. Outdoors, the Acceleration Sensor can be used to measure acceleration of cars, amusement park rides, bungee jumpers, etc.Field of science: Physics
