    Particle Movement through space #3

    A particle moves according to a law of motion s = f(t), t >= 0, where t is measured in seconds and s in feet.

    Find the velocity at time t.
    What is the velocity after 3 s?
    When is the particle at rest?
    When is the particle moving in the positive direction?
    Find the total distance traveled during the first 8 seconds.
    Find the acceleration at time t after 3 s.
    When is the particle speeding up? When is it slowing down?

    The Equation is: f(t)= cos(πt/4), t <= 10

    I don't quite understand how do to this problem so a complete explanation would be best.
