Whether that comes up in G's, or lbs, or anything else, I'm not sure how to read these. If I've uploaded wrong, or you need extra info, please let me know SPECS: Car was 2200lbs 6ft long 6ft high 16ft long Cheers RE: Car Crash Simulations - Jens Noritzsch - 08-11-2022 The gyroscope (rotation rate) gives you a … rotation rate. In order to obtain the rate around the respective current axes, you should switch to the “Absolute” tab. The numbers are given in rad/s, i.e., 6.28 (2 pi) means one revolution per second (60 rpm). You could obtain the centrifugal (*) acceleration if you knew the distance of the smartphone to the rotation axes: centrifugal acceleration = rotation-rate × rotation-rate × distance For a g-“force”, simply divide the centrifugal acceleration by 10… (*) the smartphone is apparently accelerated so it is centrifugal rather than centripetal
