CBSE Class 11-science Answered

The terms 'action' and 'reaction' in the third law gives an impression that action comes before reaction. Is there is any cause-effect relationship?

It is a misconception that in the Newton's third law of motion, action comes before reaction. There is no cause and effect relationship. In fact here we have two forces, say the force on A by B and the force on B by A that act at the same instant. As both the forces act simultaneously, any one of them may be called action and reaction.
