When a force is exerted on a box an equal and opposite reaction is?

The equal and opposite reaction in the force felt by the object pushing the box. E.g. if a person pushes a box the opposite force is the force felt on the hands


What is motion is produced by?

By Unbalanced forces(pulling and pushing)


Do all action-reaction forces produce motion?

Some do and some don't. In the case of someone sitting on a chair, they exert a downward force on the chair due to their weight. The chair exerts an equal and opposite reaction force on them but, since this upward force acting on the person is equal to their weight, the net force is zero and the person does not accelerate. However, consider now if the person pushed themselves up off the chair with their hands. They are now exerting an additional force on the chair with their arms along with the force due to their weight. The chair will exert a reaction force on the person that is equal and opposite to the combined downward force due to the person's weight and their arms pushing. Since it is equal to the weight plus the pushing force of the arms, it will be greater than the downward force on the person due to their weight and a net upward force will be produced, accelerating the person upwards.


When a person pushes a crate across the floor what is the effect?

It goes across.


What are the forces act on a skateboard?

There are several forces involved while riding a skateboard. The force of friction (air resistance and contact with ground) acting against the motion and the pushing force from when you push off with your foot acting with motion. There are also several normal reaction forces, the weight of the person on the skateboard and the weight of the skateboard on the ground.

Which of newton's laws explain how a walking person moves forward by pushing backward?

His third law "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction" because the same force that you applied to the ground is applied to you.
