what is piezoelectric sensor ?

Expert Answer:

A piezoelectric sensor is a device that transforms one type of energy to another by taking advantage of the piezoelectric properties of certain crystals or other materials. When a piezoelectric material is subjected to stress or force, it generates an electrical potential or voltage proportional to the magnitude of the force. This makes this type of sensor ideal as a converter of mechanical energy or force into electric potential.
