Question

# A boy hits the football with a large force, the action force acts on the football and the reaction force of same magnitude acts on the boy. What can be inferred from the given statement?   Action force and  reaction force are equal to each other Action and reaction force does not cancel each other Action and reaction forces acts on two different bodies All of the above

Solution

## The correct option is D All of the above The action force acts on the football and reaction force acts on the boy, thus we can conclude that action and reaction forces act on two different bodies. According to Newton's third law of motion, action and reaction are of the same magnitude, so option B is correct. Since, action and reaction forces act on two different bodies, they cannot cancel each other, so option C is also correct.
