## Homework Statement

If in an acceleration vs. mass (kg) graph (where the x axis reads (1/m1+m2), the inverse of the sum of masses), the best fit does interesect with the origin because if x = zero, or (1/m1+m2) = o, the final solution is unreal since it is mathematically incorrect to divide one by zero.

Likewise, in an acceleration vs. differences of masses, best interesects with origin since when m1-m2=0, acceleration, as as result, equals to zero.

Finally, would it be correct to stay that the y interest of an acceleration vs. mass graph represents the acceleration of the system when 0 masses are involved, or does it repersent the gravitational mass (resistance)?

Also, how would a slope of such a graph hint at the gravitional force acting on the mass, where the units of the slop are m/s²/kg?
