The direction that the ball hits the paddle or the paddle hits the ball is not relevant. What is relevant is the direction of the force. It is the direction of the two forces that are equal and opposite. The angle of the ball doesn't enter into it at all.

So the angle does not matter in action reaction forces, you say?

The angle of the force matters. The angle of the ball or the paddle or whatever doesn't matter except insofar as it affects the angle of the forcesSo the angle does not matter in action reaction forces, you say?

So, are the angles of the force opposite, or same, or different to each other?

The angle between the 3rd law forces is 180°.So, are the angles of the force opposite, or same, or different to each other?

The angle between the 3rd law forces is 180°.

Okay, just wanted to make sure. Thanks!

The angle formed between both force vectors must be always π, otherwise we will have a third resulting vector force.... Do objects with action-reaction forces have their forces exerted in opposite angles as well as opposite directions?
