GUEST,Lyle BS: Newton's Laws (47) RE: BS: Newton's Laws 29 May 02

As Dave Williams pointed out, the "action/reaction" statement of the third law causes all kinds of confusion, unless one uses the same meaning of action and reaction as was used at the time of Newton, which is not the same as today.

The best (and easiest) statement of the third law is very simple; "All forces occur in pairs." That's it. For a consequence of this law, see laws 1 and 2.

Nothing to ie, is there??
