Team 1 is racing out of the house to try to beat Team 2 to a site. They hop into the Convertible Porche Corvette Hybrid Jaguar that team 1 drives, and zoom away. If their position as a function of time is given by the equation x(t) = 3.81t3 + 9.882t2 + 18.6497t + 53.8946, determine the jerk, ab.cde, or how quickly the Convertible Porche Corvette Hybrid Jaguar's acceleration is accelerating. Carry it out to three places past the decimal.

A 17 gram bullet is fired from a gun with an original velocity of vwx m/s. It collides with a 1.9 kg tupperware covered in camo duct tape, giving the tupperware a velocity of 3.68684 m/s. As the bullet approaches the second obstacle, an ammo can, it is moving 41.9412 m/s. It collides and passes through the ammo can, giving the can a velocity of .yz m/s, then the bullet drops dead as soon as it leaves the can, its velocity reduced to 0 m/s. If the ammo can has a mass of 2.3 kg and all air resistance and mass removed by collisions is neglected, determine the original velocity of the bullet and the velocity of the ammo can after the collision.
