# Does light photons have jerk? [duplicate]

While searching in web regarding whether rate of change of acceleration is possible or not; I came across the concept of jerk. I want to know whether photons which can be accelerated can also have jerk or not?

Strictly speaking light can't be accelerated. Viewed from a local frame it always travels at a speed of $c$ and in a straight line. Since the acceleration is always zero the jerk is also always zero.
