This question already has an answer here:
while i have tried reading explanations for why newtons third law doesn't mean objects can't move such as this one: With Newton's third law, why are things capable of moving? I still do not understand how to apply them to the system I'm about to describe:
(Suppose the system is in space so friction isn't present)
Force F is pushing object A, object A thus pushes object B with force equal to F. According to newtons third law object B will exert an equal force on object A in the opposite direction. So now on Object A, two equal forces are acting in opposite directions, so it should not move. my question is why does object A end up moving after all?
