For a laboratory done at a local amusement park, my students used two
forms of accelerometers:
1. Vertical accelerometer. A plexiglass tube with one end capped, with
a fishing weight hung from a rubber band. Hanging one weight calibrates
1 "gee", hanging two weights calibrates 2 "gees", and that enables us
to mark the sides of the tube in "gees"

2. Horizontal accelerometer. A plastic protractor with a fishing
weight tied to a string which is also tied to the center of the
protractor. With zero "gees" the string hangs at 90 degrees, at one
"gee" the string hangs at 45 degrees, at two "gees" the string hangs at
30 degrees, etc.

An electronically instrumented version of these two things will do the
trick for you.

What a right royal stooopid mother****er.
See the peeing puppy moortel, he'll not be glad to add
you to his list of truly IMMORTAL fumbles. I will, though.

Thank you Androcles!

I think the Analog chip is what I desire. I wonder, does "2 mg Resolution at
60 Hz "
mean 2e-3 * 9.8m/s^2 = 1.98cm/s^2 at frequency of 60Hz?
