In 1987 the rules were amended as follows:

In order to stop the clock, the quarterback is permitted to throw the ball out of bounds or to the ground as long as he throws it immediately after receiving the snap.

Why is spiking the football to stop the clock not the same as Intentional grounding to avoid a sack?

The QB is trying to avoid losing yardage. Spiking the ball you don't lose yards. ---- I don't remember the exact year the rules were modified to allow spiking the football to stop the clock but the modification was made to allow teams a better chance to score at the end of a half/game when they are out of timeouts. The difference in the spiking vs. intentional grounding rule is the quarterback, when spiking, must take the snap from center and immediately spike the ball into the ground. The rule determines that the quarterback is doing this to stop the clock as opposed to the intentional grounding rule where the quarterback is throwing the ball to an area where there are no eligible receivers for the sole purpose of not losing yardage by being sacked. == == Because the intent of the play is not to unfairly deprive the defense of an opportunity -- it's merely to stop the clock. Keep in mind, too, that spiking the ball essentially carries its own self-imposed penalty, since it causes the offense to burn a down.

What instrument measures acceleration?

accelerometerAn Accelerometer.Acceleration due to gravity can be measured with weighing scales.Clocks may also be used. At very high ('relativistic) speeds, the apparent speed (rate of change) of a distant clock will change perceptibly (subject to relative vector). The rate of change OF this change will then allow you to calculate your acceleration.i.e. For an observer moving away from the clock at 0.5c, the emitted signals will be received around half as regularly, so the clock will appear to run slower. If you are accelerating then the apparent 'rate of ticking' of the clock will change in accordance with your acceleration.
