comment Can we determine the force an object exerts by its mass and acceleration?
I understand it's Newton's third law, but I thought that object B doesn't necessarily only exert the force object A is exerting on it. I can intuitively understand it has to be the only force, but how would I know using Newton's Laws? I mean, how did you conclude that the net force object X gets, is equal to the net force it exerts?

comment Can we determine the force an object exerts by its mass and acceleration?
"If you are able to determine that object A is only subject to one force, then you can find that one force because you know it's equal to the total force. But that's the only case in which the mass and acceleration tell you about a specific force." Yes, I can find that one force that is being exerted on the object, but does that mean that the object has (or exerts) that amount of force? If yes, can you tell me how that is?

comment Example in the book: A simple accelerometer
I understand there is force, but there could be multiple forces, and the force of the string (horizontally) doesn't have to be equal to the force of the car (horizontally), since they are not an action-reaction pair.
