Accelerometer output to tilt angle conversion?

For accelerometers such as MMA7660, by reading registers {XOUT, YOUT, ZOUT} the digital output can be immediately obtained.


However, how to convert these outputs into tilt angles? Namely, what is the relationship between physical tilt angle against the gravity/perpendicular axis, and the sensor’s {XOUT, YOUT, ZOUT} readouts?


It should in general be non-linear. Then what is the formula for conversion? Could Freescale provide some help on this?
