In the downhill case, the initial potential energy was lost to friction and what little
remained appeared in the form of a small velocity at the bottom. In the uphill case, the
initial kinetic energy (high velocity) was used to gain the height h, but more energy was
needed to overcome friction. In the absence of friction, height is transferred into velocity
