041 - Newton\'s Third Law In this video Paul Andersen explains how Newton\'s Third Law applies to all objects. When an object applies a force to another object (Action) and equal and opposite force (Reaction) is applied to the original object. Several scenarios are described to show these action-reaction pairs. Free-body diagrams are used to describe all of the external forces from these interactions.

For any pair of interacting objects, the force exerted by the first object on the second object is equal in strength to the force that the second object exerts on the first, but in the opposite direction (Newton's third law).
