Unformatted text preview: uniform bond between the strain gage and sensing beam, the stress undergone by the beam will transferred to the strain gage resulting in a strain on the wires of the gage and thus a change in resistance of the gage. Like the spring scales, the mechanical properties of the aluminum beam, according to Hookes Law, will determine how much stress is experienced for a given weight. This stress will then transfer to the strain gage, imparting a strain, or stretching/compressing of the wires of the gage, and thus changing the resistance of the gage proportionally according to its Gage Factor....
