NEWTON’S THIRD LAW OF MOTION states that action and reaction are equal and opposite.

The following are application of newton’s third law

  1. Rocket moving on high speed with a gas turbine engine. The gas exhausted from the engine push the rocket in opposite direction.
  2. A diver uses his hand and leg to push water backward while the reaction produce move the diver forward.

 
   

 

3 Recalling of gun

 

 
   

 

 

From the newton’s third law

Action = Reaction

 

MV=mv

The momentum of a jet is equal to the momentum of the exhaust gases in opposite direction. Likewise the momentum of a bullet is equal to the momentum of the gun in opposite direction.

MV=mv
