Re: how do you mount the accelerometer?

Assuming you are talking about the TI accelerometer in the kit, the data sheet shows the orientation. http://www2.usfirst.org/2005comp/Spe...elerometer.pdf

The document Joe Ross pointed you to does answer your question. If you want to measure forward (or lateral) acceleration, look at the diagram at the top right corner of the page. If you want to measure vertical acceleration (or gravity), look at the bottom left.
