```        Explanation for newton's third law of motion
```

```										Dear Joseph
According to Newton's third law...

For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action.

What does this mean?    This means that for every force there is a reaction force that is equal in size,  but opposite in direction. That is to say that whenever an object pushes another object it  gets pushed back in the opposite direction equally hard.        Let's study how a rocket works to understand Newton's Third Law.

The rocket's action is to push down on the ground with the force of its powerful engines, and the reaction is that the ground pushes the rocket upwards with an equal force.

All the best.

```										Third law: The mutual forces of action and reaction
between two  bodies are equal, opposite and collinear.
This means that whenever a  first body exerts a force F on
a second body, the second body exerts a force −F on the
first body. F and −F are equal in magnitude and opposite
in direction. This law is sometimes referred to as the

action-reaction law, with F called the "action" and −F the
"reaction". The action and the reaction are simultaneous.
