Unformatted text preview: to the magnet generating a electrical signal • Geophones are sensitive to velocity Hydrophones • Used at sea • Use piezoelectric minerals to sense pressure variations Instrument response • The relation between the input ground motion and the output electrical signal Natural frequency • The frequency which produces the maximum amplitude output Damping • Reduces the amplitude of the natural frequency response and prevents infinite oscillations • Want a flat response...
