Explain recoiling of the gun with the help of Newtons third law of motion?

Asked by 22nd August 2008, 9:11 PM
Answered by Expert

When the bullet is fired from the gun, it experiences a force in forward direction (action) , as a result the gun exerts a backward force (reaction) on the shoulder. Thus, it is in accordance with Newton’s  3rd law of motion.
