Chapter 8 – Forces on systems Newtons 3 rd law Every force occurs as one member of an action/reaction pair of forces The two members of an action/reaction pair act on two different objects The two members of an action/reaction pair are equal in magnitude but opposite in direction Consequence of Newton’s 3 rd Law: a closed isolated system cannot accelerate due to internal motions (the “no space-drive” theorem). How to do Draw each object separately. Place them in the correct position relative to other objects. Don’t forget to include objects like the earth that may not be mentioned in the problem. Identify every force. Draw the force vector on the object on which it acts. Label each with a subscripted label such as F A on B The usual force symbols, such as n and w can be used. Identify the action/reaction pairs. Force F A on B goes with force F B on A . Connect the two force vectors of each action/reaction pair with a dotted line. When you’re done, there should be no unpaired forces.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
