The physics in eating


ErikaRussell

Since eating is my favorite hobby, I noticed the amount of physics that is involved in eating. While eating a slice of pizza, I thought about how Newton's 3rd law of motion applied. As my teeth sink in to the cheese and pepperoni, they apply the same amount of force back on my teeth. This demonstrates Newton's 3rd Law of Motion which states that all forces come in pairs and if object 1 exerts a force on Object 2, then object 2 must exert a force back on object 1 which is equal and opposite in direction.
