Acelerometer ADXL335 - Can I use it to measure g-forces

Hello,

Can you advise whether I can measure/calculate g-forces with the LilyPad Accelerometer ADXL335? If so, can you please provide some guidance.

I did a wearable tech project detecting impact using Arduino, Lilypad, and sensors. I now want to capture the pressure of the impact and send data wirelessly. I have Lilypad Simblee and Accelerometer ADXL335. Do I have the right components for what I am trying to achieve?

Thanks.

The purpose of the ADXL335 is to measure accelerations (including the acceleration due to gravity), and you can report the accelerations in units of "g" (the acceleration due to gravity, 9.8 m/s/s).

The Lillypad Simblee can send the data to another Bluetooth device.

Pressure is force per unit area, which you cannot measure using the accelerometer.
