Students will learn that Newton's 3rd law holds that for every force there is an equal but opposite reaction force. Important to note that the force and reaction force act on different objects.
Learn about Newton's 3rd Law, and how the concept of the 'force pair' allows us to understand interactions between objects.
Explore changing forces to move a heavy cart to exact positions.
Reviews Newton's Third Law and explains how it relates to walking.
Know that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, and what object each force is acting on when Newton's 3rd law applies.
Reviews action and reaction forces, and implicitly introduces the importance of defining the system under observation.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Newton's Third Law.
This is an activity for students to complete after reading the Newton's Third Law of Motion Concept
Learn why knowing physics is important when rebuilding the Bay Bridge.
This study guide looks at Newton's three laws, free body diagrams, and types of forces, including the force of gravity, normal force, and friction force.
