HELP! acceleration vs. mass

  1. Mar 8, 2010 #1
    Hi! I;m doing a lab for school it due Tommrow so please excuse my nervous breaking down. The big questions are What does the slope of an acceleration vs. mass graph display? What does the slope of an a-1 vs. mass graph display?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi 1R1SFL0W3R! Welcome to PF! :smile:
    Hint: what does the slope of any graph display? :wink:

    (for example, the slope of an f(x) against x graph)

    Thanks for the help Tiny-Tim but that doesnt really help me unless its the force. If it is the force then what the one for a-i the inverse force?

    Oh! and thank you soooo much for the warm welcome!

    Yes, the force. I'm afraid I have no idea what they are asking in the "inverse of a part".
