Project to Lat/Long for Google maps using arcobjects

I'm trying to take a coordinate and convert it to Lat/Long for google maps but I don't know enough about projections to handle this.   I know it should be something like this but not sure what my Geo Types should ge or what the SetFalseOriginAndUnits is used for - can someone point me in the right direction?  I'm guessing I don't have the coordinate types correct or I need to project the coordinate somehow.


                ISpatialReferenceFactory srFactory = new SpatialReferenceEnvironmentClass();

                //GCS to project from

                int geoType = (int)esriSRGeoCSType.esriSRGeoCS_NAD1983;


                var gcs = srFactory.CreateGeographicCoordinateSystem(geoType);

                ISpatialReference sr1 = gcs;


                // what should this be???

                //sr1.SetFalseOriginAndUnits(-180, -90, 1000000);


                //Projected Coordinate System to project into

                int geoType2 = (int)esriSRProjCSType.esriSRProjCS_NAD1983N_AmericaLambert;

                var pcs = srFactory.CreateProjectedCoordinateSystem(geoType2);


                // what should this be???

                //pcs.SetFalseOriginAndUnits(0, 0, 1000);


                ISpatialReference sr2 = pcs;

                //Point to project

                var point = new PointClass() as IPoint;


                 point.PutCoords(2396130.0831298800, 15867438.6259155000);

                //Geometry Interface to do actual project

                var geometry = point;

                geometry.SpatialReference = sr1;


                point = geometry;

                double latitude;

                double longitude;


                point.QueryCoords(out latitude, out longitude);
