What I am trying to do right now is graph momentum as a linear slope on a graph.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What I know is:

p = mv

Now, I've collected data giving me the velocity of the object, and I also have the mass. Now All I am trying to do is figure out a way to graph this.

I've tried 1/p= 1/(mv) but of course all I get is a horizontal line for a slope at 1.

What I need to do is somehow make one of these variables proportional to each other in order for me to be able to derive momentum from the graph, even having the area under the graph being = to momentum would be fine.

I'm pretty stumped. I can't think of anyway I can get a proper graph that would show me momentum. At least one with a slope.

Can anybody help me out here?

I have: velocity, time, displacement, and mass as data for this.
