Accelerometers are transducers designed to measure acceleration forces. Accelerometers measure proper — also known as g-force — acceleration, which can be simply defined as "acceleration felt as weight." As its alternative terminology implies, proper acceleration is measured in g's. The "g" unit refers to the gravitational constant, which is approximately 32.2 ft/s2 (9.81 m/s2).
Proper acceleration is a type of relative acceleration measurement which uses a...
