I am using intel edison board. The maximum range stated on the website float variable is 3.4028235E+38 to -3.4028235E+38 (http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/Float). I need value upto two decimal points for the project. I was testing my system and found the value go as high as 1040.80 after that i stopped testing. I need to know the maximum value that i can store in a float variable.
I am making an arduino based project and have a variable in float to measure distance. What is the maximum range of float?
