## What does the y-intercept of a mass volume graph represent?

You can use this graph to figure out how much mass is in any given volume of a substance. Using the x-axis, locate the volume you’re wondering about, then find the y-intercept and use the y-axis to find how much mass there is in that much volume. Therefore, the slope of a mass versus volume graph is equal to density.

### How do you find the y-intercept?

The y-intercept is the point at which the graph crosses the y-axis. At this point, the x-coordinate is zero. To determine the x-intercept, we set y equal to zero and solve for x. Similarly, to determine the y-intercept, we set x equal to zero and solve for y.

#### Is 0 0 and intercept?

The point given by (0,0) is called the origin. If a graph passes through the origin then the x-intercept and the y-intercept are at the same point and are therefore equal. This is the only point where the x- and y- coordinates are equal.

**Why do mass volume graphs not have angles?**

-the more the line “bends”, the greater the # of changes – MASS/VOLUME GRAPHS SHOULD NOT HAVE ANGLES.

**What is the y-intercept in an equation?**

The y intercept is the point where the line crosses the y axis. At this point x = 0. Consider the following equation: 6x +3y = 18. To find the x intercept set y = 0.

## What is the y-intercept of y =- 3?

Algebra Examples Using the slope-intercept form, the y-intercept is −3 .

### What happens if y-intercept is 0?

If a line has no y-intercept, that means it never intersects the y-axis, so it must be parallel to the y-axis. This means it is a vertical line, such as . This slope of this line is undefined. This slope of this line is zero.

#### What does it mean when y equals 0?

Your equation y = 0 is a linear equation since the variable has no exponent. Remember, the slope-intercept form is y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
