[SOLVED] Newtons Second Law

1. Homework Statement
On a force/mass vs acceleration graph where force/mass is horizontal, what does the slope represent?

2. Homework 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?
