I am trying to understand what forces act on which objects, and which forces are pairs with regards to newtons 3rd law.
So imagine a rope attached to a bob is being spun round in a circle parallel to the ground (I know it can't be perfectly horizontal but just for ease lets say it does). I know the tension acts as the centripetal force on the bob. But does this directly act on the bob because the tension acts in the rope so surely it acts on the rope? And what would be the equal but opposite force be of the centripetal force?
