Using Newton's Third Law of Motion


Newton's third law explains how you can swim and jump. It also explains how rockets can be launched into space. If body A applies an action force on body B, then body B applies a reaction force on body A. If the action force of body A is greater than the reaction force by body B, then the body starts accelerating in the direction of net force in accordance with the Newton's second law of motion.

Learning Objectives:

After completing this module, you will be able to:
- Describe that every action force has a reaction force in the opposite direction.
- Explain that a body accelerates in the direction of the net force.
