The cannonball has less mass, and mass and acceleration are inversely proportional


The cannon has less mass, and mass and acceleration are inversely proportional


The cannonball has less mass, and mass and acceleration are directly proportional


Newton’s third law does not always apply

Detailed explanation1: Newton’s third law states that for every action there must be an equal and opposite reaction, so the forces on the cannon and cannonball are equal in magnitude (but not direction). and the mass of the cannon is larger than the mass of the cannonball, so the acceleration is lesser for the cannon than for the cannonball.
Detailed explanation2: According to Newton’s third law of motion, forces always act in equal but opposite pairs. Another way of saying this is for every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction. This means that when you push on a wall, the wall pushes back on you with a force equal in strength to the force you exerted.
Detailed explanation3: Newton’s Third Law is that of ActionReaction which states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This means that as you are pushed down, further and further in your seat, the seat is pushing back at you.
