For example, if your acceleration was a = 4.0t and you want to find velocity after 3.0 seconds, how would you do that? Thank you!

Have you learnt calculus yet? You need to integrate the acceleration with respect to time, while setting the lower bound to 0 (seconds) and the upper bound to 3 (seconds), i.e.

[tex]v(3) = \int_0^3 a(t) dt = \int_0^3 4t dt [/tex]

Here, v(t) refers to velocity as a function of time, so v(3) is velocity at time 3 seconds. a(t) is acceleration as a function of time.
