Piezoelectric Lighter Accelerometer
This Lighter Accelerometer hack by Bardlund demonstrates piezoelectric properties.
“Piezoelectricity is the ability of crystals and certain ceramic materials to generate a voltage in response to applied mechanical stress. Piezoelectricity was discovered by Pierre Curie and the word is derived from the Greek piezein, which means to squeeze or press. The piezoelectric effect is reversible in […]
