Newtons Third Law 8 th Grade Science Fremont Junior High

Its the Law! Newtons 3 rd Law of Motion states … For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. So…forces always come in pairs.

Applies to objects at rest An object stands on the floor, pulled down by the force of Earths gravity. However, the object does not move in that direction, because the floor stops it. The floor is exerting on the object an equal and opposite force. http://www-istp.gsfc.nasa.gov/stargaze/Snewton3.htm

The oars move in a backwards motion The boat moves forward. The movement of the oar is the action. The movement of the boat is the reaction. The movements are opposite in direction but equal in force. Applies to Objects in Motion Oars Boat

Applies to Objects in Motion The swimmers arms move in a backwards motion The swimmer moves forward. The movement of the arm is the action. The movement of the swimmers body is the reaction. The movements are opposite in direction but equal in force. swimmer arm motion

Applies to Objects in Motion The hot gases move in a downward motion The rocket moves upward. The movement of the gases is the action. The movement of the rocket is the reaction. The movements are opposite in direction but equal in force. Rocket hot gases

The toe exerts a force on the rock. The rock exerts a force on the toe. The movement of the foot is the action. The force of the rock is the reaction. The movements are opposite in direction but equal in force. The greater the force, the greater the impact (pain) Applies to Objects in motion + objects at rest

The runner exerts a force on the starting block. The starting block exerts a force on the runner. The push of the foot against the starting block is the action. The force of the starting block is the reaction. The forces are opposite in direction but equal in force. The greater the force, the greater push off

Skateboarding The foot exerts a force against the ground. The ground exerts a force on the foot. The push of the foot is the action. The force of the ground is the reaction. The forces are opposite in direction but equal in force. The greater the force, the faster the rider will go.

Rifle Recoil A gunpowder explosion creates hot gases that expand outward allowing the rifle to push forward on the bullet. The bullet pushes backwards upon the rifle. The acceleration of the recoiling rifle is... –a. greater than the acceleration of the bullet. –b. smaller than the acceleration of the bullet. –c. the same size as the acceleration of the bullet.
