The earth pulls on an apple with 0.5 N of force. Which statement is the most accurate about this situation?
The Apple is in static equilibrium.
The apple doesn’t pull on the earth as is evidenced by the fact that it is only the Apple that moves.(my choice)
Wind resistance keeps the apple from pulling on the earth.
The Apple pulls on the earth with 0.5 N of force.
