Final Answer

uphill part of the velocity is nothing but acceleration and down hill is the deceleration.

when the velocity remains constant after a gradual increase, we see that the graph will reach the summit and as deceleration starts, the graph also starts falling down.

therefore, constant velocity is at the summit or at the critical point of the graph.
