  4. How is velocity calculated from the linear transducer versus force data?

This depends on which option is selected to calculate data sets – displacement only (linear transducer), force only, or both. If both is selected then displacement and velocity are calculated from linear transducer data and force is measured from the force plate. If force only is selected then velocity data is calculated from force data using impulse-momentum relationship and displacement data including peak height are calculated by integrating the velocity time data.
