Is Newton's third law of motion applicable during natural disasters or not?Why?
Asked by shaktidevgun | 8th Jun, 2015, 07:09: PM
The forces produced by the natural disasters act on bodies for a short interval of time and can be termed as impulsive forces. The impulsive forces does not remain constant but changes from zero to maximum and from maximun to zero during the time interval for which the disaster occurs. Also, according to the Newton's third law, forces never occurs singly in nature. It always occurs in pairs as a result of mutual interaction between two bodies.Similarily, when a natural disaster occurs forces of action and reaction always act on different bodies at the same instant. Hence they never cancel each other and produce their own effect which results in the after effect of a natural disaster.
