Yes, the following law made my life, a Champion’s life, 26 years and 9 months of total, out of which initial 7 years were very hard due to a good and strong opponent, but rest of the majority years were happy like exemplary.
The law of action-reaction (Newton’s third law) explains the nature of the forces between the two interacting objects. According to the law, the force exerted by object 1 upon object 2 is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the force exerted by object 2 upon object 1. How a good opponent can make champion, if the above statement is true. When this law was revisited, it is explained like:
Consider the collision between the club head and the golf ball in the sport of golf. When the club head of a moving golf club collides with a golf ball at rest upon a tee, the force experienced by the club head is equal to the force experienced by the golf ball. Most observers of this collision have difficulty with this concept because they perceive the high speed given to the ball as the result of the collision. They are not observing unequal forces upon the ball and club head, but rather unequal accelerations. Both club head and ball experience equal forces, yet the ball experiences a greater acceleration due to its smaller mass. In a collision, there is a force on both objects that causes an acceleration of both objects. The forces are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction, yet the least massive object receives the greatest acceleration.
See, what Newton says: one object is hitting the other; low mass could not finally stand at its place and goes too far. Heavy mass stays off and becomes the Champion, not the ball. Similarly a car cannot move on a highway if its tires has no treads, which create friction to rotate the wheels under Newton’s law, otherwise the car will skid / slip on the road. I have heard (not confirmed) that Aristotle said “I am not going to marry till I find my (to-be life partner) says it is night time, when I say it is daytime as I will not enjoy life with a similar understanding of my life partner. Another definite theory of magnetism is “Like poles repel each other while opposite poles attract”. To move forward we have to discuss not to agree only but to decide who is wrong and who is right.
As far as Champion in sports is concerned, I became All Pakistan YMCA Table Tennis Champion at the age of 14 after defeating some good, tough opponents in Quarter Final and Semi Final. You know what does understanding / similar thought in sports means? Answer is anyone can become Champion if they agree upon a fixed amount in currency. I have never been a Champion of that type in any field as I believe in tough competition.
