# Chapter 10 Section 3 Quiz - Motion & Force (Holt)

10 Questions | Total Attempts: 360  Settings  It is a known fact that for every action there will be a reaction. This is also the same when it comes to an object, if a person applies just the right amount of force to an object; the object is most likely to move. This was part of our main focus on chapter ten sections 3 as we go to understand the relationship between motion and force. Take the quiz and see what you recall.
