Rocket Acceleration Logger
My Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics class had a design project in which we modeled the flight of a water propelled rocket. I built this ADXL150 based data logger to collect acceleration data during flight. By recording 1,023 values from an Analog-to-Digital Converter, a time history of acceleration could be plotted. Despite the success of the circuit, time constraints prevented me from finishing the 2-Liter rocket. Data was downloaded to a laptop using a primitive cut and paste method.
