The gradient of a line is the same as the slope of a line. It will tell someone measuring the line how straight the line is.

### How do you work out the gradient of a perpendicular line?

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.

There probably isn't one. On the flat all that is needed is a force to provide acceleration as there is no gravitational gradient to overcome. Strong men have successfully pull locomotives with their hair.
