well i am assunming you mean 'm' in linear graphs. it means the gradient in the linear equation y=mx+c.

(-1.5,0) (1.5,0) what is the gradient?

Draw a tangent to the curve at the point where you need the gradient and find the gradient of the line by using gradient = up divided by across

A positive gradient goes uphill from left to right A negative gradient goes downhill from left to right

If the gradient is a positive number the curve is increasing, and if the gradient is a negative number it is decreasing.

what do you mean by gradient of a scalar field? what do you mean by gradient of a scalar field?

basically the reciprocal of the original lines gradient is going to be the gradient for the perpendicular line (remember the signs should switch). For example if i had a line with the gradient of 3, then the gradient of the perpendicular line will be -1over3. But if the line had the gradient of -3, then the line perpendicular to that line will have the gradient 1over3.
