This lesson will show that when a force is exerted on an object, an equal and opposite force is produced, as stated in Newton's Third Law.

Tutorial

Isaac Newton developed 3 laws to describe motion. His third law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Basically this means that if a force is exerted on an object that object will exert an equal force in the opposite direction.

Example

You are playing baseball and swing a bat and hit the ball. The bat has exerted a force on the ball and the ball has exerted an equal force in the opposite direction on the bat.
