    • Determine the cantilever sensitivity in order to transform a deflection in V into a deflection in m (or nm):
      Deflection [m] = Deflection [V] × sensitivity [m/V] (1)
    • Determine the spring constant in order to transform a deflection in m into a force in N (or pN):
      Force [N] = Deflection [m] × spring constant [N/m] (2)
    • Thus the combinaison of the equations (1) and (2) gives:
      Force [N] = Deflection [V] × sensitivity [m/V] × spring constant [N/m] (3)
