Acceleration:

$\overline{){\mathbf{a}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{\u2206}\mathbf{v}}{\mathbf{\u2206}\mathbf{t}}}$

The slope of a velocity time graph is the acceleration.

The graph in the figure (Figure 1) shows the velocity v of a sports car as a function of time t

(a) Find the maximum acceleration a_{max} of the car. Express your answer in meters per second per second to the nearest integer.

(b) Find the minimum magnitude of the acceleration a_{min} of the car
