Ratterson (12) asks -‘What is Newton’s third law of motion?’

Hello Ratterson. I am real, so that is my first answer. I have my own thoughts on Newton’s third law , but firstly I will ask my friends to think about it.


Thanks team. I think I agree. When somebody fires a gun the bullet is pushed forwards and the gun is pushed backwards, the forces are equal and opposite. I can remember a little experiment that I once carried out. I sat on a trolley with lots of sandbags on it. one by one I threw the sandbags of the trolley and the trolley began to move! And it moved faster and faster as I continued to throw the sandbags off it. I was forcing the sandbags in one direction and I was being pushed in the opposite direction.
