What is represented by the slope of a Force vs. Distance graph?

Also, if I had a Force vs. Distance graph and knew my initial velocity was some value, how would I go about finding the velocity at any distance along the way?

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

W=Fd

v=d/t

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that the area under the curve of a Force vs. Distance graph represents work (W=Fd). Is the slope of a Force vs. Distance graph *acceleration*?
