Questions arise in my high school physics class about all sorts of things. A current thought question had to do with a piece of paper in space and a constant force being supplied at its center, perhaps by an alien or astronauts finger tip. Would the outer edges of the paper bend from the center of contact in the opposite direction of motion. There are no air particles distributing a resistance force, however would the localized force push the paper along in space as a flat sheet or more like what we would experience on earth. By bringing in Newtons III Law it would appear that the paper will move along as a flat sheet since there is no resisting force, however, earthbound experience and logic makes it hard to believe that this would be true. For sake of discussion, lets assume that there are no forces due to solar winds or gravitation towards another object.
