When we push a table the table exerts an equal and opposite force on us, these forces cancel each other then why does the table move?

The two forces are acting On two DIFFERENT objects. On the table, Only the force applied by YOU is acting. So there is only 1 force acting ( In standard Condition, no friction etc.) on the table. Thus there is no force to cancel it out.

when we apply the force on the table ,if it exerts the same force and opposite direction the two forces are cancelled and it become stable.But we need to push the table so weuse greaterforce than the body exerts on us,then only body moves.

we dont move because the force that we are getting from the table is less than the frictional force between our shoes ..on slippery floors frictional force would be less and hence it would be difficult to move the table without getting slipped okkkkk

 

Now you may ask if frictional force is applied to us then there must be equal force applie ont he earth tooo???

the answer is yes the earth also have effect of it but this force would be very less and since force=mass *acc.

acc=force/mass but the mass of earth is very large so this acc. would be close t zero ......but still it will effect in sort of....

Please approve my answer if you have understood it...Smile

when we push a table that will exerts  opposite force on us ,but when you apply the force which is greater then the table moves.thats why table moves.
