If all such We now pass on to the third law of motion, which was stated counteracting causes could be removed, the body would move on by Newton as follows :—Reaction is always equal and contrary for ever. This cannot, of course, be proved directly by experi- to action, or the mutual actions of two bodies upon each other ment, but we can easily assure ourselves of its truth, for, in are always equal and in opposite directions. When a carriage proportion as we remove these obstructions, the motion con- is drawn by horses, they are pulled back with the same force as tinues for a longer period.

We sec, thus, that motion overcame its motion has been greatly removed.

Now Now if we consider the pressure on a body to be the action, remove it to the receiver of an air-pump, exhaust the air, and the quantity of motion produced is the reaction, and this law set it vibrating as before, it will be found that the motion will asserts that these are equal. But the quantity of motion is continue for a much greater length of time, the resistance of measured by the product of the mass and the velocity, that is, the air being in a great degree removed.

From experiments like these we can ascertain the truth of the The momentum produced is therefore proportional to the preslaw, and it is important to bear it in mind, since the neglect of sure. Hence the law is frequently stated thus :-When presit has often led to great mistakes.

Momentum, then, is the measure produce or alter it, either by increasing or diminishing its speed, of moving force, as velocity is of accelerating force. From this or by changing its direction.

we find a way of comparing these two. The latter is measured We now turn to the second law of motion, which may be by the velocity, irrespective of the mass, and as the pressure, stated as follows :—When any number of forces act on a which is the moving force, imparts the velocity to the body, it particle, each produces its full effect in producing or altering is equal to the mass multiplied by this velocity. That is motion, exactly as it would if it acted singly on the body when moving force = mass X accelerating force. Hence, if we at rest.

divide the moving force by the mass, we obtain the accelerating Of this we have many simple proofs. Let a stone be dropped force. from the mast-head of a ship, it will fall exactly at the foot of From this we can calculate the dynamical unit of force, that the mast, just as if the vessel were perfectly at rest.

This a falling body acquires in one second. But the velocity we want motion was exactly equal to that of the vessel, as both were is only 1 or of this. Hence the unit of moving force iz moving at the same rate; and each of these forces produces its full effect. The stone falls in exactly the same time as it would 253 gr. x 2.7 or 7-85 gr. take if the vessel were at rest; it moves througb the same The proof of the third law we must defer to the next lesson. horizontal space that it would if it were not falling; and at the end of the time occupied in falling is in the same place as if each force had acted singly during that length of time, the only
