Paddling My Own Canoe
by anisah
Entry has been withdrawn
34th place
A rather complex example - the canoe does not sink because of the equal and opposite reaction of the water to the canoe and the man. It would remain at rest in the water but the force used by the man with the paddle moves the water and also the canoe through the water.
