The Go Direct® Force and Acceleration Sensor (GDX-FOR) is used for data collection on the Go Direct® Centripetal Force Apparatus (GDX-CFA). When measuring centripetal acceleration it is important to use the sensor bracket in order to note with accuracy the position of the accelerometer.

The best method of attaching the bracket to the sensor is to hold the bracket in place with the arms of the bracket resting securing against the bottom of the sensor while tightening the thumb screw. This will ensure that the bracket is level and reads accurately on the scale located on the rotating beam of the Centripetal Force Apparatus.
