  1. Velocity reverses direction only if V goes from positive to negative, or negative to positive. Triangle-shaped V(t) graphs do not have to cross the x axis, but they might. Were you given a specific graph?

  2. yeah the graph they gave me was triangle shape was above the x-axis. the two ends of the legs are touching the x-axis but does not cross all the way to the negative side.
