Momentum and Newton's Laws of Motion

Momentum and Newton's Laws of Motion problem 56

Are the following statements correct?

  • If we act on a body with a certain force, the body also acts on us with an equal and opposite force.

  • Bodies interact only with direct contact.

  • A body acts on another body with a force F, and the second body on the first with the opposite same force. Since the sum of both forces is zero, the body is at rest or moving evenly and in a straight line.

  • The law of interaction also applies when a body acts with force on another body and accelerates it.

  • The earth acts on the Moon with the same force as the Moon on the Earth.
