Acceleration is a change in velocity with respect to time. An accelerometer is a transducer that represents acceleration as a voltage. Accelerometers also can measure vibration and shock. Accelerometers typically convert acceleration measured in g's to voltage. For example, a sensor with a rated output of 10 mV/g should produce 50 mV when subjected to 5 g of acceleration.
