Every force has a(n) ____ force.
reaction
longrange
opposite
accelerating
You throw a ball into the air. As the ball leaves your hand, the force(s) acting on it is/are ____.
gravity
your hand
balanced
gravity and your hand
I think 1. is opposite and 2. is gravity but I just want to make sure.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well in my text book it says that forces always have equal but opposite pairs.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So wouldn't it be that every force has an opposite force?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok true, but when I learned physics they called it a reaction force. if your book says opposite force, then go with that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, I just wanted to make sure though because this is my last exam . Also, do you agree that 2. is gravity?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why are you saying not your hand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because it's saying "As the ball leaves your hand".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So wouldn't it be not counted as a force because it's not acting upon it?

Miss_Deva

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The only force that would be acting on it would be gravity as it's going up in the air.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Based on Newton's Law equal and opposite forces.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's what I though also. I also decided to go with gravity and your hand for 2. and I got both of them right. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As the ball "leaves" your hand... hmm, that's really trick and wow okay that's great!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And yes, number 2 was tricky. :P
