Since F = ma, a = F*1/m.

Comparing that with good old y = mx + b, the slope on the a vs 1/m graph should be F.

I trust you used the same force for all the data points. The force you used is your "accepted value" for the slope.

YES ! i totally understand :) my slope is in Newtons so it would turn out to be F ! Thank you !
