What is the type of stress that pushes masses of rock sideways in opposite directions?
What is the net force if you push a cart to the right with N of force and a friend pushes the cart to the left with N of force?
When you are driving in a car and turn a corner centrifugal force pushes you toward the door of the car opposite the direction of the turn?
What is wrong if the power steering pushes in the opposite direction when turning and the more you turn the more it pushes in the opposite direction?
Third law: The mutual forces of action and reaction between two bodies are equal, opposite and collinear. the force coming out of the rocket creates thrust and thus pushes the rocket and the ground in opposite directions, the mass of the earth is so great that the rocket can not really move it, so instead the rocket shoots up away from the ground.
According To Newtons 3rd Law Of Motion For Every Action There Is An Equal And Opposite Reaction Then How Come Things Move If There's Going To Be Something Moving Them Back With Equal Force?
Rockets go up because of Newton's Third Law of motion, which states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Essentially, as the rocket pushes down on the rocket exhaust, the exhaust pushes back on the rocket with the same amount of force, in the opposite direction. This force is what lifts up the rocket.
_Seafloor Spreading_ 1. Hot, molten rock is forced upward toward the seafloor at a mid-ocean ridge. 2. Molten rock pushes sideways in both directions as it rises, moving the mantle with it. 3. Molten rock flows onto the seafloor and hardens as it cools. 4. New seafloor moves away from the ridge, cools, becomes denser, and sinks. - Maylin _ Source_ Glencoe Textbook
