Problem 54E

54. (a) The graph of a position function of a car is shown, where $s$ is measured in feet and $t$ in seconds. Use it to graph the velocity and acceleration of the car. What is the acceleration at $t=10$ seconds?

(b) Use the acceleration curve from part (a) to estimate the jerk at $t=10$ seconds. What are the units for jerk?
