 PHYSICS
a 75kg parent and a 22kg child meet at the center of an ice rink. they place their hands together and push hard enough to slide apart.
a. is the force experienced by the child more than, less than, or the same force experienced by the parent? I said they experience the same force according to Newton's third law which forces in opposite directions have and equal magnitude of force.
b. is the acceleration of the child more than, less than, or the same acceleration as the parent? I said that the child has more acceleration because of the force exerted on him.
The rest of these questions I did not understand how to answer them.
c. if the acceleration of the child is 2.3 m/s2 in magnitude, what is the magnitude of the force of the parent's push on the child?
d. so what is the magnitude of the child's push on the parent?
e. what is the parents acceleration?
