1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Been trying the last few hours to figure out what the slope of a kinetic vs potential graph means. I did a lab this past week dealing with springs and a glider. Was asked to graph a X^2max-x^2 vs v^2 graph. Made the graph but have no idea what the slope means. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Solved for total mechanical energy and change in potential energy and still do not know what slope means. Maybe I put them on the wrong x-y axis. Right now I have v^2 on the y axis. Can somebody please point me in the right direction.
