(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

r(t)=(5.00t^{2}x + 12.5t^{3}y meters

The position r of a 12.0 kg mass, moving in the x-y plane

2. Relevant equations

Third derivative....

sqrt(x^{2}+y^{2})

3. The attempt at a solution

Is it correct to just take the third derivative and plug in 12 kg and find the magnitude and that would be a jerk?
