Newton’s Third Law When a body exerts a force on another, the second body exerts an equal oppositely directed force on the first body. ote: the two forces act on different bodies Note: the two forces act on different bodies • Force on body 2 ue to body 1: due to body 1: F 21 Force on body 1 due to body 2: F 12 body 1 body 2 3 d law: F 21 =- F 12

Example 1 N 12 N 10 kg 5 kg 60 N 21 A block with mass 5 kg and a second block with mass 10 kg are supported by a frictionless surface. A force of 60 N is applied to the 10 g mass What is the force of the 5 kg block on the 10 kg block? kg mass.
