Demo: Newton's Third Law (Force Vectors)
Two Smart Carts with Vector Displays are placed at rest with their rubber bumpers against each other. The forces are equal and opposite on two carts that are being pushed at rest. Then the two carts are pushed back and forth: The forces are equal and opposite on two carts that are in motion. Finally, add a third cart between them and observe the effect on the forces.
