1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Explain why when a person in a canoe throws a package onto the shore, the canoe moves away from the shore? 2. Relevant equations No equations, just Newton's third law. 3. The attempt at a solution I think it's because the person applies a force onto the package and the package applies a reaction force onto the person.This increases the force being applied to the canoe, which increases the force that the canoe is applying on the water. Thus, the water applies that same amount of force on the canow, pushing it forwards. Is this correct?
