Newton’s 3 rd Law Newton’s 3 rd Law:   Every force occurs as one member of an  action/reaction pair of forces. The two members of the action/reaction force pair act on two  different  objects. The two members of the action/reaction pair are equal in magnitude  and opposite in direction: A on B B on A F F = - r r Alternate Wording:  “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Implication of Newton’s Laws:  the  interaction  is the principal item  of  interest;  the force is an aspect of the interaction. Consequence of Newton’s 3 rd Law:  a closed isolated system cannot accelerate  due to internal motions (the “no space-drive” theorem). January 25, 2011 5/31 Physics 114A - Lecture 11

Newton’s 3 rd Law of Motion      Although the accelerations are the same, the net force on  the two boxes will not be unless the boxes have the same mass. Contact forces:
