A woman (m = 45kg) is kneeling on the shoulders of a man (m = 70kg) in pair figure-skating while both are traveling at 1.5 m/s. The man gracefully accelerates the woman forward into the air.

Which object experiences the greatest force, the man, the woman, or both the same?

    Both the same

    Explanation:

    According to Newton's third law of motion, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Therefore, for the above described case, the force of man is same as that of woman but in opposite direction. F1=-F2 where F is force and subscripts 1 and 2 represent man and woman respectively.

    However, the acceleration of the woman will be greater since the mass of woman is smaller but magnitude of force are equal.
