Physics Toolbox Accelerometer

Physics Toolbox Accelerometer


This accelerometer app measures and displays a graph of G-Force vs. Time(s) that can be exported in an e-mail as a .txt attachment with comma separated values (csv). G-Force and acceleration measured in the x, y, and z dimensions are displayed separately on the graph, and the total vector sum is displayed digitally.

See a review of this app in the Institute of Physics' physics education periodical: "Map and apps widen the scope of school physics." Physics Education. (May 2013). pg. 409-410. Retrieved online at: http://goo.gl/YtVfXe

Permissions Explained:

android.permission.WAKE_LOCK: Used to keep the device awake only when recording accelerometer data to csv. (Example: After pushing the record button, the app will continue to collect data even when placed in a pocket during a roller coaster ride, and will turn off only after data recording has been stopped.)

android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: A csv file is created and modified on the phone's internal memory.

Pretty good Installed on Nexus 5. Works pretty well, but sometimes does slows down the recording interval to multiple seconds between points (might have been my phone), and other times won't let me zoom. Still the best of the accelerometer apps I've tried with a normally quick update interval, and I like the ability to save data.

Physics Toolbox Accelerometer. Would be nice if it included a frequency analyzer.

Needs GPS integration Would be extremely useful if only the data could be linked to UTM position data. I would pay for that.
