In a certain experiment, an object moves with a constant acceleration, and its speed is measured at several different positions. When speed is squared and plotted versus position, there appears to be a direct relationship. This plot is shown below, where a best-fit line has been inserted, and two specific points on the best-fit line have been marked.
