# Force vs. Acceleration

How am I going to write an equation of the line about force and acceleration?

What formula should I use to fine the slope of an graph? What will be my unit of the slope?

What physical quantity does the slope represent?

If you have a graph of acceleration vs. Force, then the slope will naturally be acceleration/force, or the amount that acceleration increases for a unit increase in force.

what would an equation be that describes the relationship between force and acceleration?

Good old Newton and his second law of motion:

F = ma
