# How does Newton's third law apply to soccer?

Constant impact with other players and the ball exerts opposite and equal forces.

According to Newton's Third Law of Motion, there is an equal and opposite reaction to every action. To understand this, picture a situation in which two opposing players are pushing or shouldering each other physically to get the ball.

Should the two soccer players come into contact with one another, they would encounter forces that are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.

The players' total momentum remains unchanged, but if, for example, one player applied more force than the other, the forces exerted by both players would still be equal. Instead, the player being shoved will be pushed away with more momentum, and the player applying the greater force will also be pushed away with some, but not much, momentum.

Newton's third law states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. In soccer, when a player kicks the ball, the ball exerts an equal force back on the player's foot. This interaction is crucial for understanding ball movement and player dynamics on the field.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- How fast will an object with a mass of #16 kg# accelerate if a force of #8 N# is constantly applied to it?
- An object, previously at rest, slides #3 m# down a ramp, with an incline of #(pi)/3 #, and then slides horizontally on the floor for another #25 m#. If the ramp and floor are made of the same material, what is the material's kinetic friction coefficient?
- An object with a mass of #12 kg# is on a surface with a kinetic friction coefficient of # 1 #. How much force is necessary to accelerate the object horizontally at # 3 m/s^2#?
- If the length of a #44 cm# spring increases to #58 cm# when a #5 kg# weight is hanging from it, what is the spring's constant?
- If an object is moving at #18 m/s# over a surface with a kinetic friction coefficient of #u_k=12 /g#, how far will the object continue to move?
