Question #49748

With some force i hit the wall and with same force i hit wet clay,does the reaction force same in both case?how can we say that there is same reaction force in both case if we get hurt more in beating the wall than the wet clay?

Expert's answer

Yes, the reaction force same in both casesare equal according to Newton's third law. We get hurt more in beating the wall

than the wet clay because when we beating the wet clay it change its form and

maximize the area between our hand and clay’s surface. So, the pressure on our

hand in the second case would be smaller. That’s why we get less hurt in beating

the wet clay.
