Newtons Second Law

    [SOLVED] Newtons Second Law

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    On a force/mass vs acceleration graph where force/mass is horizontal, what does the slope represent?

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    My calclations: ex. (2m/s^2 - 1m/s^2)/(3 N/kg - 1N/kg)
    =.5 (m/s^2)/(N/kg)

    N=kg/m/s^2 so the all units cancel out

    the Units of the slope can be simplified to elimiate all units so we are left with a unitless answer. What does it represent?
