Abstract

The Wii Balance Board is a popular accessory to the wireless video system the Wii. In the past few years, the Wii Remote™ and Wii Balance Board accessories to the Wii have made their way into physics labs as sensors to measure force and acceleration. In most introductory physics courses, the forces experienced while on an elevator are discussed and calculated. The Wii Balance Board is a very good tool for having students measure the forces experienced on an elevator and calculating the acceleration of the elevator when it starts to move and then while it is coming to a stop.
