Personal G-Force Meter: Theory

The Theory
           The theory for this project is heavily based upon the topics covered in the accelerometer tutorial. The theory is that the sensor measures accelerations with respect to the earth's own gravity which means it can also be used as a tilt sensor. The following video demonstrates how the sensor can also be used to measure 'tilt':

How The Accelerometer Works
           Many different accelerometers are available and there are many different types of methods used to measure acceleration using them. A popular method is to use a bubble inside the chip and then to measure that bubble's movement based on certain variables.
