In this post, we will see how Newton’s third law can be derived from the equation of conservation of momentum. Derive Newton’s third law from the equation of conservation of linear momentum Say, a body of mass m1 with velocity u1 collides with another body of mass m2 with velocity u2. After the collision, say, […]

## Newton’s Third Law of motion – concepts and examples

Newton’s third law of motion states that to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This means for every action or force exerted by the first object on the second object, there will be a reaction force that is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the action force. And this reaction force […]
