    <a href="#top"><span></span>Back to Top</a>

CSS Part
#back-top position is fixed 30px bottom and 100px right, top.png as background and transition is 1 second.

    if ($(this).scrollTop() > 400) {

    s = e(".scrool-top");
    e(window).scroll(function() {
    e(this).scrollTop() > a ? s.addClass("scrool-is-visible") : s.removeClass("scrool-is-visible scrool-fade-out"), e(this).scrollTop() > t && s.addClass("scrool-fade-out")
