1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 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*?
