    Velocity curve to find acceleration and distance? Any help?

    For this velocity graph: http://i57.tinypic.com/33ww6fs.jpg


    Is the greatest acceleration at t= 0,2,3,4, or 8? I think it's at 3, right?


    What is the net distance and the total distance from t=0 through 8? I'm not sure how to find these.

    Never ever post the same question twice.

    I wasn't sure if I should put it in geometry or calc.

    That is not the point. Do not post but once.

    Okay I won't again. I just wanted help for this question And every time I see that someone's replied I think it's someone who's helping and then I just feel bad because you're just telling me over and over not to post twice. I'm sorry. I won't again. You don't have to be hurtful. It is part of the point that I didn't know which one to put it in because I was trying to give you my reasoning behind posting twice, but obviously that doesn't matter to you. I don't understand why you would even post again unless you wanted to help, which I guess you don't.

    Again that is not the point.
    I do not want anyone to waste his/her time answering a post that has already been answered.

    It hasn't already been answered. Can you help? Because if not we're both really just wasting time. :/
