]Answer 1
100N INCORRECT This answer is incorrect, because by Newton's third law, which states, that forces act in equal and opposite pairs. 100N is not equal to 500N. return to top
Answer 2
200N INCORRECT This answer is incorrect, because by Newton's third law, which states, that forces act in equal and opposite pairs. 200N is not equal500N. return to top
Answer 3
500N CORRECT This is correct, because Newton's third law states that forces act in equal and opposite pairs. 500N is equal to 500N. return to top
Answer 4
yellow INCORRECT This answer is incorrect, because by Newton's third law, which states, that forces act in equal and opposite pairs. 1000N is not equal 500N. return to top
What's this question really asking?
