Why is the body moving if every action has equal and opposite reaction?I mean don't the forces cancel each other out?

forces dont cancel each other out unless they are indeed equal and in opposite directions. but since we live in a higher dimensional plane greater than R^1; things tend to get pushed about. in my opinion
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes but if you push something that something will push you back with the same equal force right?
amistre64
  • amistre64
yes, until the forces involved reach a breaking point of one of the object such that the energy is imparted to it and it moves

But there is equal forces on both.Why would one reach a breaking point and not the other?
amistre64
  • amistre64
|dw:1333217088273:dw| these forces are in opposing directions; but are clearly not equal
anonymous
  • anonymous
Every action has an "EQUAL" and opposite reaction
amistre64
  • amistre64
when one force reaches a threshold and can no longer push back; it receives the resulting forces and moves
amistre64
  • amistre64
the reaction, is to move ....
anonymous
  • anonymous
But as long as there is a force there will be an equal opposing force

i think you are mis reading the intent of it

How so?Please explain

Im asking what is the fault in my questioning that
amistre64
  • amistre64
we are either talking about 2 different instances, or one of us is misunderstaing the other
amistre64
  • amistre64
can you provide an example of what it is you are asking?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now if you take a Jet engine, It works on the fact that you are pushing force out of the back of the engine, so according to Newtons third law, there is a force pushing fowards. If this force is equal and opposite of that coming out of the back of the engine, shouldn't you just stay stationary?
amistre64
  • amistre64
these forces are not equal in relation to the plane itself; the plane is being acted upon by these forces and when it reaches its threshold it moves in the direction of the greater force in order to expend it acquired energy in a useful manner

Ok you apply 100 newton on a ball so now the ball applies 100 newton back on you.Why is it that it is only the ball that is moving?
amistre64
  • amistre64
the ball stays still in its frame of reference and you move ....
anonymous
  • anonymous
Both the ball and myself are in the same frame of reference
amistre64
  • amistre64
then you are the ball apparently
anonymous
  • anonymous
Didn't get you
amistre64
  • amistre64
can the ball exert an equal and opposite force without moving? or does it have to expend its aquired energy to accomodate and equalize the reactions?
amistre64
  • amistre64
spose you exert 100N on mount everest, what moves, you are the mountain?
anonymous
  • anonymous
There you get 100 newton on yourself applied on you by the mountain hence the pain you feel.But the mountain doesn't move because F=ma.Here m is too high for 100n force to give any valid accaleration
amistre64
  • amistre64
the reaction doesnt imply no motion is what im getting at. it implies that the resulting movements are determined BY the forces involved
anonymous
  • anonymous
But what Im saying is the reaction must invoke some motion because there is a resultant force on you!
amistre64
  • amistre64
things can have forces acting upon them and exhibit no motion (ideally) when they are in a state of equilibrium.
anonymous
  • anonymous
What Im saying is why are you in equilibrium if the ball is exerting a 100 n force on you?
amistre64
  • amistre64
forces of collision are a different can of worms :)
amistre64
  • amistre64
if you and the ball can exert the same amount of force in the opposite direction; then you are at an impass; if there is movement to be had it is in imparting energy from one object to the other ...

Hey!!!!!!!!I think I got it!the "action" and "reaction" forces in Newton's 3rd law always act on different bodies. Only if two equal and opposite forces act on the same body would they cancel.
ujjwal
  • ujjwal
yeah after a long discussion which seemed pointless to me ( i read the whole conversation now).. u finally got the point.. the two forces always act on different bodies..
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah now that I read it it looks the same to me
ujjwal
  • ujjwal
wt was that all..?? plane , threshold. imparting energy?? LOL... the answer was so simple n was thought in the most complex way possible.. can't stop laughing..
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's why I was confused.Well anyway I understand now :D
ujjwal

thank god u did..
