Problem 5CQ

A mosquito collides head-on with a car traveling 60 mph. Is the force of the mosquito on the car larger than, smaller than, or equal to the force of the car on the mosquito? Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 5 CQ:

Step 1 of 1:-

Here we have to explain whether the force of mosquito on the car and the force exerted by the car on the mosquito are same or not.

The two forces must be same and opposite in direction.

As, there is no other force (we are excluding gravity and considering the system as a closed one), the momentum will be conserved and hence the two forces are equal in magnitude.
