Are you familiar with Newton's 3rd Law? If not: :)

Actually, @CShrix, maybe since the board breaks you can't say for sure?

Nope! The law always applies. Whether it breaks or not is a different matter. If a fly hits a bus that is driving with a certain force and is squished upon contact, it still hits the bus with the same force as the force that the bus hits the fly.
