We know that KE = 0.5mv²
We first need to find out whether the graph will go through zero or not.
Using the eqaution above, we can see that if v² = 0, then K.E. will also be equal to 0.
So the graph does go through 0,0.
y = mx + c
Since c (y-intercept) = 0, we get the equation,
y = mx
K.E. = 0.5 mv²
We know the K.E. is on the y-axis and the square of speed is on the x-axis.
Therefore, m (gradient) in the equation (y = mx) would be 0.5 m (0.5 mass).
We know that the mass = 2.5 kg
So gradient = 0.5 x 2.5 = 1.25
