    A force meter, also known as a force gauge or force sensor, is a device used to measure or quantify the amount of force being applied to an object. It is commonly used in physics, engineering, and various industries to measure forces such as tension, compression, and shear.

    A typical force meter consists of a load cell or a spring mechanism that deforms under the applied force. This deformation is then converted into an electrical signal, which is measured and displayed on a calibrated scale or digital readout. Force meters can be handheld devices or integrated into larger systems depending on the specific application.

    Force meters are used in a wide range of fields, including quality control in manufacturing, material testing, research and development, ergonomic analysis, and product safety testing. They are versatile tools that help engineers and scientists ensure that forces are accurately applied or measured in various applications and experiments.
