## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello everybody,

I am trying to calculate the maximum velocity(x) an object reaches between two point. The object accelerates from point A to a certain velocity(x) and then decelerates to point B. The acceleration and deceleration are known but are different. The distance from point A to point B is known. Is there a formula I can use to calculate the maximum velocity between the two points?

I have attempted to solve this by graphing the distance and time of the object and I have attempted rearranging formulas to do this but with no luck.

Your help would be greatly appreciated,

Mark
