Tell whether or not each of the following is a pair of 3rd Law interaction force partners : (a) A mule pulls on a plow, moving it forward; the ground pulls back on the plow. (b) A car pulls forward on a trailer; the trailer tugs back on the car. (c) You push forward on a box without moving it; the floor (friction) pushes backward on the box.
