As a ball goes up, the force of gravity is acting on it. The force of gravity means that acceleration in the upward direction is negative (and thus positive in the downward direction). The upward velocity of the ball decreases until it reaches zero - then ball begins to descend with increasing downward velocity.

Kinetic energy is proportional to the square of the speed. If you reduce the speed by a factor of 12, the kinetic energy will reduce by a factor of 12 x 12 = 144.Kinetic energy is proportional to the square of the speed.
