Concept

Problem: A block with an initial velocity v 0 slides up and back down a frictionless incline. Which graph best represents a description of the velocity of the block versus time? The initial position of the block is the origin; i.e., x = 0 at t = 0 . Consider up the track to be the positive x-direction.
