Today, we will start to explore Newton’s Third Law through interactive lecture and demonstrations. The law states, “If two bodies interact, the magnitude of the force exerted on object 1 by object 2 is equal to the magnitude of the force simultaneously exerted on object 2 by object 1, and these two forces are opposite in direction.” The important thing to remember is that action-reaction forces act on different objects!
