Hi there,

could anyone help me on how to connect an FSR to measure dynamic force (i.e. change in force over time). what kind of interface do I need?

An FSR has three wires, just like a potentiometer, and is connected in exactly the same way as a potentiometer.

Since FSR just measures force at a time, what do I need to do to measure the dynamic force?

To measure the change of any quantity over time, take two readings at different times and subtract the first from the second.

The time rate of change would be that difference divided by the time difference in seconds.
