- Understanding Newton's third law and free body diagrams
A rock sits on a table. Draw complete free body diagrams for the rock and the table and highlight the action-reaction pair that includes the rock pushing down on the table.
- Calculations with Newton's second and third laws
- An 85.0 kg fireman slides down a pole with an acceleration of 2.85 . Find the action-reaction force pair that involves the pole and calculate these forces.
- Two ice skaters stand on a frictionless ice rink and face each other, each holding the end of a rope. 50.0 kg skater A pulls on the rope, pulling 40.0 kg skater B with a force of 25.0 N.
i. Draw a free body diagram and find the acceleration of skater B.
ii. When skater A pulls on skater B, does skater A accelerate? If so, draw a free body diagram and calculate the acceleration.
