    These laws are applicable to our daily life. If two people sit in chairs with wheels on them and push off each other, they will move in opposite directions. When a person shoots a gun, the gun recoils as the bullet is propelled forward. Pushing on a bed allows a person to propel her body off the bed so he/she can stand up. With some objects, the reaction force is not easy to see. If you throw a ball at the ground, for example, the Earth does not appear to move. The Earth does move, however, but it moves such a small amount that it can barely be detected. Even when simply sitting in a chair, action forces and reaction forces are at work. does this work i really like to talk about newton!!!!!
