Acceleration and Mass

    What does the slope of acceleration and mass mean?

    What would be on the Y axis and X axis?

    F=ma. m=F/a, which shows that if you use the force applied on the y-axis, with the acceleration on the x-axis, the mass of the object will merely be the slope. You can rearrange that formula in other manners if you want to graph it differently.
