A child on a cart with wheels throws a sandbag forward. As a result:
The child moves in the backward direction as a consequence of action-reaction law. Sandbag exerts an equal and opposite force in the backward direction.
When a fireman directs a powerful stream of water from a hose-pipe, the hose-pipe tends to go backward. This is due to:
Which among the following is true as per Newton’s third law:
Action and reaction forces are always:
A person standing on a weighing scale sees a reading on the scale as 148 pounds. This person is acted on by:
An archer shoots an arrow. Consider the action force to be the bow string against the arrow. The reaction force is the:
According to Newton's 3rd law of motion, " Every action has an equal and opposite reaction ". So if we have to push the arrow in forward direction, we will pull the bow string in backward direction.
Two spring balances pull each other in opposite directions. If the reading of one spring balance is 2 N, the reading shown by the second spring balance will be:
The spring balances are hooked and pulled in opposite direction. By the action-reaction pair force, the reading must be equal to 2.0 N.
Which one is correct if a bullet is fired from a rifle?
Which is incorrect statement about action and reaction forces?
A player is catching a ball. Consider the action force to be the impact of the ball against the player’s glove. What is the reaction force?
Reaction force: Force that the glove exerts on the ball is the reaction force, opposite to the impact of the ball on the player’s glove.
