1. 3 The transducer was moved to produce a response and the results displayed in the oscilloscope were recorded. (Shown in Figure 2)
1. 4 After the measurements all the data was recorded to our tables (Figure 7&8).
1. 5 This process should be repeated for the transducers with extra mass attached to it (As shown in figure 4) in order to provide a differing signal response (as shown in Figure 5).
1. 6 With all the measurements taken and calculations done, the Bode Plot was created (Shown in figure 3,6)

Observations
In our experiment we carried out three different tests using three different masses on a piezoelectric transducer. First we used a 0 mass piezoelectric transducer and we discovered that it does not provide a uniform response over the 3-7 Hz frequency range. Additionally, the peak to peak voltage is rather high at 395-340 mV. Then we increased the mass of the piezoelectric transducer to approximately 0.75 g (1.8g total with wires) and we discovered that the amplitude response is acceptable over the specified tremor frequency range with a variation of 0.8 dB with a peak to peak voltage of 165-100 mV. We did further testing with a mass of 2.2 g total...
