What happens during a car crash using Newton's 3 laws of motion.


Expert Answer

1 Rating

Newton’s third law states that for every action, there exists an equal and opposite reaction force. It means that forces always occur as pair.

Suppose a car crashed with some object, according to Newton’s third law, car and the other object experience equal magnitude of force. The force exerted by car on the other object will be ...
