Reciprocity: Newton ` s 3d law ! F spring on mass Force magnitudes are the same Directions are opposite They act on different objects Reciprocity (Newton ` s 3 rd law): The forces of two objects on each other are always equal and are directed in opposite directions ! F mass on spring ! F spring on mass = ! ! F mass on spring ! ! p = ! F net ! t NOTE: Velocity-dependent forces (e.g., magnetic forces) do not obey Newton ` s 3 rd law! 3
