Newton's 3rd Law

What is Isaac Newton's Third Law of Motion? "Every Action has an Equal and Opposite Reaction."
What is an example of this law? A rocket launching.
How does this law apply to everyday life? When an object exerts force on an object, that object exerts an equal force on the first object.
How are action and reaction forces related? The reaction force exerts a force in the opposite direction in which the action force was directed.
Can you always detect motion during an action force? No, you cannot always detect it.
Why do action and reaction forces not cancel each other out? They act on different objects so there is a change in motion.
Are action and reaction forces balanced or unbalanced? They can be either.
What happens when two objects exert force on an object with equal force? The object will not in either direction.
What would happen if you caught a ball on roller skates? The force of the ball will push you backward.
If you were in a car traveling at 35mph and suddenly stopped, what would be the action and reaction forces? The action would be the car stopping, and you lurching forward.
