Name________________________________________________________ Date__________________________ Investigation 4Newton’s Third Law of MotionNewton’s Third Law of Motion:“When one object exerts a forceon a second, the second object exerts an equaland oppositely directedforceon the first.;” or “To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”Answer the following questions are clearly and concisely as you can.1.A physics student holds a ball in her hand at resta.The two forces that are acting on the ballare:1)the gravitational force (gravity) – the earth pulling downward on the ball (noncontact)2)her hand exerts a force on the ball upwards (contact)b.Name the reactionforces to the two forces above and indicate the directions of the forces. . 1) 2) 2.The physics student now releases the ball (lets the ball drop). Consider the ball as it falls toward the ground without air resistance. The force that is acting on the ballas it isfalling is the gravitational force (gravity) pulling downward. Name the reaction force and indicate its direction. 3.
