CBSE Class 9 Answered

If action and reaction forces are equal and opposite, then why do they result in change in momentum of the body?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 04 Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
Expert Answer

Action and reaction forces are indeed equal and opposite, but they act on two different bodies. Hence, they do not cancel each other.

Therefore, they result in a change in momentum in the respective bodies.
