Physics of driving



It comes a time when everyone turns 16 and it's finally time to get behind the wheel and start driving.After taking a closer look, I realized that Newtons Third law applies to driving a car. For example, Newtons third law states that every action has a reaction. This applies to driving because when someone is driving the action is when the car is pushing agaisnt the road and reaction is when the road pushes agaisnt the car's tires. Now lets say you (by accident) hit a person, when you hit that person, the person also hits the car. Or when you hit a pole, the pole also hits the car. Also when you push the gas pedal, the gas pedal pushes back onto the persons foot.Therefore, Newtons third law applies to driving a car.
