Hi all,
   I'm new to the world of micro controllers please bare with me.

  I'm curious if the arduino is capable of manipulating an analog input signal and then outputting it.

For example, I want to use an accelerameter to weight a fluid, manipulate the signal, then output a volume to an lcd.  Can a code be written which will manipulate the input in real time?

Basically yes. It has a 10bit A/D to read analogue signals.
However most accelerometers have a digital interface fo there is no need to read it from the analogue.

Mind you, you can't weigh anything with an accelerometer.

Yes you can weigh stuff with a strain gauge.
