Question

A person stops a ball. Newtons third law applies in stopping it. Is the statement true or false?

  1. True
  2. False

Hint:

False

The correct answer is 'False'.


    • The statement is false. Newton's third law of motion doesn't apply here.

    • A fast moving ball has a tendency to keep moving due to inertia.
    • According to Newton's second law, the force with which ball is moving is equal to its mass multiplied by its acceleration.
    • When we catch a ball, momentum of the ball is transferred from ball to hand.
