Newton's Third Law
By: Natalie and Keiko
Newton's third law is a law that states that,
"For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."
This simply means that for every force,
there is a reaction of equal size, but in the opposite direction.
A force is a push or a pull that acts
upon an object due to it interaction with another object.
For example, gravity is a force which acts upon all things on planet Earth
Other forces include: speed, inertia, and acceleration.
The larger the acceleration or speed of an object,
the larger the reaction. Inertia is the resistance
of an object against outside forces.
What It Means
If this law were nonexistent, fish would be stationary, rocket travel would be a thing only dreamed about, and hitting a wall would have little effect.
Why This Law is Needed
"Too bad we can't ever go
to the moon ain't it Jerry?
I think I'm stuck!
