    I have one question

    Is there a way to calculate the force of electrical signals?

    These signals are generated by AE sensors and they are in (RMS values) volt unit. This is the only information available

    Or can be these volts considered as Electromotive Force (EMF) of the signals as they are generated by these sensors?

    This is a physics forum. We have an electronic chat forum, as well as a project forum, so I am moving your threads over there.

    Yes, EMF is measured in volts.

    What is an AE sensor?

    Thanks crutschow

    Are you sure that these RMS values in volts unit are the emf
    If this true, one can calculate the impulse of signal as the integration of the emf over the time interval

    Please help if you can

    AE sensor is Acoustic Emission Sensor

    so any idea

    What is the "impulse of signal"? :confused:

    Emf is not actually force. It's a misnomer.
