Year 10 Pathway C Mr. D. Patterson 1

 Recall Newton’s third law  Use Newton’s third law to explain the effects of collisions and other common events 2

 For every action there is a an equal and opposite reaction  If a first object exerts a force F on a second object, the second object will exert a force –F on the first. F -F

I’m gonna push you! ActionReaction Sky diver pulled to Earth Earth pulled to sky diver!!

 When a car travelling at high speed crashes into a light pole, the pole is damaged because of the force applied to it by the car.  Why is the car also damaged?  Newton’s third law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The pole will apply a reactive force to the car which causes the damage. 5

 Recall Newton’s third law  Use Newton’s third law to explain the effects of collisions and other common events 6
