The third law of motion

Newton's third law concerns how objects interact with each other, how they can transmit forces from one to the other. In Newton's words, the law is "to every action there is always opposed an equal reaction, or the mutual actions of two bodies upon each other are always equal and directed to contrary parts." Now more simply stated it is for every force there is always an equal and opposite reaction or some people say for every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction.

When an object pushes another object, it gets pushed back in the opposite direction an equal amount. So, let's go ahead and take a look at how this works. Here we have a simple pendulum, which just rocks back and forth. Now, when I add in an object for it to hit, what's going to happen is that pendulum object is going to transmit its momentum as a force onto this object. But this object will also push back on the pendulum and decelerate.

So, what is this force doing? This force is actua...
