In physics, jerk, also known as jolt, surge, or lurch, is the rate of change of acceleration; that is, the derivative of acceleration with respect to time, the second derivative of velocity, or the third derivative of position.
Jerk is a vector, and there is no generally used term to describe its scalar magnitude (e.g., “speed” as the scalar magnitude for velocity).
