Pontoon pump forces

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all.
I have a pontoon pump, that when activated takes off in a particular direction. It has been described as inertia, however my understanding of inertia is angular momentum, so not sure why this would make the pump go in a particular direction.

I originally thought it was because the pump accelerates water in one direction, therefore the pontoon goes in the opposite. Any help and reference material would be great.

That does not make sense.

Right
