The piston of a machine exerts a constant force on

The piston of a machine exerts a constant force on a ball as it moves horizontally through a distance of 15 cm. You use a motion detector to measure the speed of five different balls as they come off the piston; the data are shown below. Use theory to find two quantities that, when graphed, should give a straight line. Then use the graph to find the size of the piston’s force.
