Problem 20E

A farmer urges his horse to pull a wagon. The horse refuses, saying that to try would be futile, for it would flout Newton’s third law. The horse concludes that she can’t exert a greater force on the wagon than the wagon exerts on her and, therefore, that she won’t be able to accelerate the wagon. What is your explanation to convince the horse to pull?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 20E Step 1 : To answer this question we shall first consider the 3rd law of Newton which says “ Every action has equal and opposite reaction “ So firstly it is right argument by the horse that for the forward force exerted by the horse there will be opposite backward force by the wagon
