    Hey guys! I just wanna ask really quick about contact microphones. Is there any way to calculate the electric signal that comes out from the mechanical stress? Sorry if my question is weird and very naive. Help would be greatly accepted.

    This is a pretty good read on how microphones work. Sort of generic in nature because it address a broad spectrum of microphones. As to the math behind converting the sound pressure on a microphones diaphragm to electrical energy it depends on the specific type of microphone. This link may help a little. Beyond that I don't know what to tell you. Hopefully an audiophile type will come along with much more than I have.
