    i want to know why strain gauges are better to measure force than piezoelectric sensors

    We prefer that you start a new thread for a question, rather than posting into a old one. The original thread is - http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/showthread.php?t=24017

    Besides issues like standardization of output, piezo sensors only respond to changing forces. Strain gauge force sensors have a continuous response and can report on a maintained force over time.
