I SOMETIMES WISH NEWTON HAD STOPPED AT TWO LAWS. Lecture 9 : Newton’s Third and Free Body Diagrams Newton ’s Third Law s Third Law For every force, or action there is an equal but opposite force, or reaction. Forces ALWAYS happen in pairs. BA AB F G G = Newton Newton ’s third law: Action and Reaction s third law: Action and Reaction Example: Gravitation. You attract the Earth! F g you,Earth = gE a r t h , y o u gy o u ,E a r t h a r t h , y o u But the acceleration that this produces on the Earth is nothing to be too proud of…) , m/s 10 kg 10 6 ) m/s 10 )( kg 70 ( weight your 2 22 24 2 Earth × = M a EXAMPLES N person ,wall wall, person Person leaning against the wall Person leaning against the wall

In outer space, there isn’t much else around besides its own fuel. rocket DEMO: What if roads where not properly fixed to the ground? Two carts are put back-to-back on a track. Cart A has a spring- loaded piston; cart B, which has twice the mass of cart A, is entirely passive. When the piston is released, it pushes against cart B, and the carts move apart. Which of the two forces exerted by the two carts on each other has a larger magnitude? 1. The force exerted by A. 2. The two forces have equal magnitude. 3. The force exerted by B. A B ACT: Carts with spring It’s a third law pair!! DEMO: Skateboards A Book on a Table Normal on book by table
