My homework is on balanced and unbalanced forces and Newton's Third Law of motion...

Balanced and Unbalanced

INTRODUCTION

An unbalanced object is when two unequal forces act on an object...

Unbalanced Forces

When an object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts a force on the first object that is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction; for every action there is an opposite reaction...

Forces are a push or pull on an object that can change the motion of it...

TERM

The forces acted on an object can be an unbalanced force or a balanced force...

A balanced force is when two equal forces act on an object...

Jake likes to drive around in his car. When he looked at another car that was moving slowly, he noticed that the wheels were moving backwards. He didn't understand this and he asked his science teacher about it. She told him that he was observing an excellent, real life example of Newton's Third Law of Motion. She explained that his law stated that for every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction. This applied to the scenario because the wheels that are turning backward propel car forwards.
