    The basic principles governing the analysis of the dynamic response of simple measuring instruments are presented, with suggestions on the selection of instruments with adequate time and frequency response. Brief attention is paid to static characteristics. The several types of transducers commercially available for use in pressure gages, dynamometers, accelerometers, vibrometers, and other tools for use with modern recorders are described. Typical sources for instruments in each class are tabulated.
