    the displacement curve looks like

    s = ksinpt + w for 0<= t <= 8 sec

    so the velocity would be the derivative...

    There is a stationary point at t=4 so the velocity curve should cross the time axis there. Since it is also a maximum, the velocity should be positve before t=4 and negative after t=4.

    The gradient also looks like it is 0 at t=0 and t=8 so velocity should be 0 there as well.

    It looks like it has the steepest gradients at t=2 and t=6, so the highest velocity is at t=2 and the lowest at t=6
