# What are the application of Jerk in Engineering physics?

Jerk is defined as the rate of change in acceleration. But I would like to know some practical applications of Jerk inorder to have better understanding. I kindly request to suggest me some examples.

The application of jerk in physics have many instances and one of the example I can shot is simple that the jerk is nothing but it is all about the rate at which any objects acceleration changes with the time or with respect to time.

Why is jerk not used in physics?
So, to solve for an object's motion, we only need to consider two state variables, position and velocity, along with their time rates of change, velocity and acceleration. The notion of “jerk” never shows up, and is thus unnecessary in describing or predicting motion. Aug 2, 2019

Jerk is the first time derivative of the acceleration. In technical applications the jerk information can be used to control bodies in motion for accurately and precisely control, to improve the control response and to avoid excessive input of acceleration. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1002/pamm.200910037

Due to a lack of continual assessment or grade related data, identifying first-year engineering students in a polytechnic education at risk of failing Engineering Physics is challenging.
