Draw a velocity versus time graph of a stone thrown vertically upwards and then coming downwards after attaining the maximum height.

AcademicPhysicsNCERTClass 9

When a stone is thrown vertically upward from point A, its velocity starts decreasing due to gravity, and at maximum height, $(peak\ point\ B)$ its velocity becomes zero. Then its velocity starts increasing when the stone goes downward from the peak point and becomes maximum while reaching the ground at point C.

The graph below shows the velocity of a vertical upward thrown stone at different points A, B and C.
