''' Electrical Characteristics'''

-The mpx5050 requires 5v Supply Voltage. The minimum is 4.74 and max
5.25, so there is a litte wiggle room but its 5v.
-Supply current ov 7.0 and max of 10
- the full scale uotput is 4.7Vdc , almost 5v
Added lines 82-87:

''' Additional parts needed'''

At the barest essential you need air to create pressure, this can be done by hooking up a balloon. Rubber tubing, a windy day , running quickly, strapping it to a car, taking it for a fly , attaching it to a kite. Its up to you imagination but most likely you will need a way to direct the air pressure into the MPXx5050 and its family members ( the MPX5050D which does not have a nozzle, and the MPX5050p which has 2 nozzles)
All of the family members of this sensor are on the same data sheet (LINK TO DATA SHEET) which is handy.

'''Pin Descriptions'''

This is a six pin sensor, however only 3 of the pins are used to hook up a basic i/o, or microcontroler to get serial a reading.
Below shows the details of all of the pins, this is useful for an in depth understanding. The image below the diagram descibe the pin uses for power (vcc) ground and out(v out).

Pins 4,5 6 are Internal / NO connects

Initial report by [[~login | Hanny Ahern]], April, 2012
Introduction
“The MPXx5050 series piezoresistive transducer is a state-of-the-art
monolithic silicon pressure sensor designed for a wide range of applications,
but particularly those employing a microcontroller or microprocessor with A/D
inputs
. This patented, single element transducer combines advanced
micromachining techniques, thin-film metallization, and bipolar processing to
provide an accurate, high level analog output signal that is proportional to the
applied pressure.” – freescal semiconductor data sheet

It is important to note that this is an pressure sensor, not to be confused with a force sensitive resistor which deals with a different type of pressure, the MPX x5050 and its family deal strictly with air pressure
