    Well in my text book it says that forces always have equal but opposite pairs.

    So wouldn't it be that every force has an opposite force?

    ok true, but when I learned physics they called it a reaction force. if your book says opposite force, then go with that.

    Ok, I just wanted to make sure though because this is my last exam . Also, do you agree that 2. is gravity?

    why are you saying not your hand?

    Because it's saying "As the ball leaves your hand".

    So wouldn't it be not counted as a force because it's not acting upon it?

    The only force that would be acting on it would be gravity as it's going up in the air.

    Based on Newton's Law equal and opposite forces.

    That's what I though also. I also decided to go with gravity and your hand for 2. and I got both of them right. :)
