moving car runs into stationary car, (against a wall)car does not move, however, the wall push back cancelling the force. Explain Newton's law that apply.
Thanks, George

The struck car does not move because the Forces applied to the struck car at both ends, by the moving car and by the wall, are equal and cancel.
