The line formula

Still today, the line of object is explained by philosophy as monistic and dualism or just quantum physics. So the philosophy is like the relativity formula until today.
But I can understand the line as the figure and shape of the things. The shape of each line nonsense and just puzzle so useless.
As we started, the line is already done by our physics formula.

No, a "line" is not a physical object. A "line" is a mathematical abstraction. Sometimes the word "line" is used in physics to describe something similar to a mathematical line but any physicist needs to be aware of the difference.

line Formula

A line can be represented as
y= mx+c
Where m= slope of line
m= (y2-y1) /(x2-x1)
Where (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) lies on the given line.
