The nearly-free electron model, Physics

Consider an electron in a simple one-dimensional periodic potential. The energy of the electron will vary periodically due to the influence of the periodic potential, and can be described by an energy-wavevector relation:
E(k)=-Acos(ka)
where a is the lattice constant and k is the Bloch wavevector.
a) Obtain an expression for the velocity of a wavepacket as a function of k
