If a ball is rolled up a ramp at initial velocity 12 m/s and decelerates at a rate of 2 m/s2, then does the ball run back down the ramp with an acceleration equal to the deceleration?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The incline is 36 m long and it takes 6 seconds to reach the position where the final velocity is zero.
