I'm studying for my class of physics laboratory and I need help with something:
Let's say I need to deduce the constant of elasticity of a spring and I will do it using a dual-range force sensor, throught dynamic and estatic measurements. So it is necessary to stablish the frecuency sample-rate according of the period that it will last my experiment. Considering that $F=n° of samples/T$ where $F$ is the frecuency, and the number of samples is one and $T$ is the period that last my experiment.
What do you recommend me to establish the period and frequency without really knowing a lot about the spring and its own characterstics? It should be through a simple and not necessarily precise way the estimation of the frecuency sample-rate.
