1} Is it possible to attain zero friction situation on earth ?2} Space has no friction so how do the rockets stop there ?

Attaining zero friction is very difficult as matter exists everywhere on Earth.
However, creating a vacuum chamber will reduce the friction to a greater amount.
Rockets stop in space by firing thrusters in the opposite direction to the direction in which they are travelling.
This will create a force in the opposite direction, thereby enabling them to stop in space.

- explain the derivation of laws of motion
- A hockey ball of mass 200g travelling at 10m/s is struck by a hockey stick so as to return it along its original path with a velocity at 5m/s.Calculate the change of linear momentum occurred in the motion of the hockey ball by the force applied by the hockey stick.

- Derive 1st law of motion from second law of motion
- Two bodies have mass 10kg and 15kg have identical size. Which has more inertia?
- According to newton's first law of motion an object tends to remain at rest or in uniform motion until and unless and external forces acts on it so suppose a dog is sleeping and then suddenly it wakes up and starts walking so it has come into motion without any external force acting on it how
- What is there law of Newton?
- A hammer of mass 500g, moving at 50m/s, strikes a nail. The nail stops the hammer in a very short time of 0.01s. What is the force of the nail on the hammer?
