I calculated a slope from a best fit line of a velocity squared vs position graph but I don't understand what this slope represents. My units come out to be in cm/seconds squared, so does that mean thats my acceleration? It seems to be way off from 9.80m/sec^2 which should be my acceleration. Or does this slope help me determine to acceleration?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
