Problme 6CQ Two students stand at rest, facing each other on frictionless skates. They then start tossing a heavy ball back and forth between them. Describe their subsequent motion.
Step 1 0f 3 Newton's second law states that “The rate of change of momentum of a body is directly proportional to the applied force & takes place in the direction of force”. This law implies that the direction of acceleration is same as that of applied force. Newton's third law states that “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”. 1) The forces act on different bodies & not on the same body. 2) Newton’s third law is valid when bodies are at rest or in motion or in contact Step 2 of 2 According to newton's third law “to Every action there is equal and opposite reaction”. Initially the two boys are standing on frictionless surface and facing each other when the first boy thrown ball he experienced action and reaction force and he moves backward from his original position similarly the second boy thrown the ball he also experienced action and reaction force and he also moves backwards from his original position . when thrown ball both are moving backward and away from each other
