It cannot. To have a force applied to a vacuum is a meaningless statement.space vacuum is not an object....how can any force be applied to it.
Nothing to do with a vacuum: you have one mass (you) exerting a force on another mass (the shoe). So? Nothing in here about exerting a force on a vacuum, whatever that might mean.ie the force of my mass moving another mass..?
Yes, your arm accelerates the shoe in one direction, and you will accelerate in the opposite direction if you are floating in space.how can a force be applied to another object in space vacuum if there is no anchor or leverage or external resisting forces?
my arm throws my body recoils from my arm and the shoe recoils from my hand that is connected to my arm we move as far as my arm is long and thats it no further
Not true.for me to apply a force i must be anchored..
So, since every mechanical force is accompanied by an equal and opposite force, you must agree that nothing can possibly accelerate. Right? That seems to be how you are thinking. (Which is wrong, of course.).you cannot move the object any further than net force applied which is equal and opposite to both bodies canceling each others acceleration
Finally, a true statement!An object's acceleration is the net result of any and all forces acting on the object, as described by Newton's Second Law.
Oops... you need to review Newton's 3rd law.you cannot move the object any further than net force applied which is equal and opposite to both bodies canceling each others acceleration....and why wouldnt it cancel...because the action and the reaction are exactly the same
So what is your response to my scenarios with the ball and the slingshot above?so me throwing anything in space vacuum would result in the impressed forces from pressure of my arm and equal and opposite force applied to the object and both the object and me will move away from each other and then back toward each other simultaneously.........canceling each others impressed forces so no movement will occur
OK.im not talking about here on earth im talking about in a perfect weightless vacuum..
OK.: If there were no gravity, and if the air did not impede the motion of bodies, then any body will continue its given motion with uniform velocity in a straight line.
: Every body under the sole action of its innate force moves uniformly in a straight line indefinitely unless something extraneous hinders it.
: Every body perseveres in its state of being at rest or of moving uniformly straight forward except insofar as it is compelled to change its state by forces impressed.
"impressed" force is just any external force acting on an object. And yes, as soon as you remove it, it no longer acts on the body.what is an impressed force....This force consists in the action only, and remains no longer in the body when the action is over.
You throwing your shoe in space would have you exerting a force on the shoe and the shoe exerting a force on you. You both accelerate and move away from each other. As soon as you break contact you no longer exert forces on each other, you just keep on moving at constant velocity.so me throwing anything in space vacuum would result in the impressed forces from pressure of my arm and equal and opposite force applied to the object and both the object and me will move away from each other
Why is that?and then back toward each other simultaneously.
So you're pulling the rubber band back, the pebble along with it. You let go of the rubber band and it propels itself and the pebble forward. The rubber band eventually stretches forward to a point where it cannot go further forward. This is what happens on earth and in space.stored energy in the rubber will move the ball as far as the rubber band will recoil ...what has been impressed onto the ball that the ball did not impress back to the rubberband
The reciprocal of 0 force is 0 force. The equal and opposite reaction to 0 would be 0.
