Newton's 3rd Law

Newton's 3rd law

Newton's 3rd law explains that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The statement means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects. The size of the forces on the first object equals the size of the force on the second object.

Real World Examples

3 examples of Newton's 3rd law are; An airplane pushes back on the air and the air pushes forward on the plane, a car pushes on the ground and the ground pushes back on the car, and when you sit in a chair, the amount of force that you are putting on the chair is pushing back up on you with the same force.
