### Chapter 12: Forces and Motion

Section 12.3

Newton’s Third Law of Motion and Momentum

Newton’s Third Law of Motion
• States that whenever one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite force on the first object.
Action and Reaction Forces
• These forces that are produced by the two objects are action and reaction forces.
• Sometimes action and reaction forces result in motion – sometimes they don’t.
• Action and reaction forces do NOT cancel themselves out.
Momentum
• Product of an object’s mass and its velocity
• An object at rest has a momentum of 0.
• Momentum = Mass x Velocity
• Measured in kilogram-meters/second
• p = mv
Conservation of Momentum
• Momentum is conserved in a closed system.
• A closed system of objects means that there are no outside forces or objects acting on the objects in the system.
• In a closed system, the loss of momentum by one object equals the gain of momentum by the second object.
