Q. 103.7( 3 Votes )

You are standing with your bag in your hands, on the ice in the middle of a pond. The ice is so slippery that it can offer
no friction. How can you come out of the ice?

Answer :

Newton’s third law of motion can be used here. I could throw the bag in the opposite direction I wish to go. The bag will also push me with the same force but in opposite direction. Since the surface on which I’m standing is frictionless, the bag and me will come to the edge of the pond by sliding but both will be in opposite direction.
