Question

In this lab you will use Excel to plot a distance x on the vertical axis and the inverse of mass m on the horizontal axis. That is, a plot of x versus 1 m . Plotted this way, the data falls on a straight line. If x is in centimeters and m is in grams, what are the units of the slope of the line?

    Answer:

    When you find the gradient (slope) of a graph, you divide a change of value on the vertical-axis (the ‘rise’) by a change of value on the horizontal axis (the ‘run’).  

    Gradient = rise/run.  

    The vertical axis has units of cm, so the rise in in cm.  

    The horizontal axis has units of 1/grams = g⁻¹, so the rise is in g⁻¹.  

    units for slip are  

    rise/run ≡ cm/g⁻¹ ≡ cm.g
