I am using the Adafruit 10 DOF breakoutboard and more specifically the accelerometer on it. I implemented the I2C connection just fine and the sensor is working. However, when I try to convert the value I get from the sensor to a g value I run into problems…
The documentation (https://cdn-shop.adafruit.com/datasheets/LSM303DLHC.PDF) says that at the measuring range of +/-8g which it is at the sensitivity is 4 mg/LSB. Which as far as I understand it means that I have to multiply with 4 to get from the reading I get to mg and then I divide by 1000 to get to g. Where is my mistake here? Because when I do that I get ~16 instead of the expected 1g.
Sorry for the basic question… I am just stuck
