This storyboard does not have a description.
If you wanted to catapult a pumpkin by using a seesaw and Newton’s second law of motion, you would need a heavier object on the opposite side of the pumpkin. You can drop the heavy object at a certain height, and the higher you drop the heavy object, the more acceleration (due to gravity) it has.
Newton's Third Law
Just like every action you do has a consequence, every force applied, has a force similar, but different from the initial force.
Newton’s third law may be understood by comparing it to the real word better. Let’s say you did not study for a test. The equal, but opposite reaction would be a bad grade on the test. Now, if you jump off the side of a boat into the water, you are not only sending yourself forward into the water, but you are also pushing the boat backward.
