It is upon the principle of action and reaction that birds 157. are enabled to fly. They strike the air with their wings, and the reaction of the air enables them to rise, fall, or remain stationary, at will, by increasing or diminishing the force of the stroke of their wings. | 158. It is likewise upon the same principle of action and reaction that fishes swim, or, rather, make their way through the water, namely, by striking the water with their fins. J 159. Boats are also propelled by oars on the same principle, and the oars are lifted out of the water, after every stroke, so as com pletely to prevent any reaction in a backward direction.

If the forces be unequal, the body will move with diminished force in the direction of the greater force. Thus, if a body with a momentum of 9 be opposed by another body with a momentum of 6, both will move with a momentum of 3 in the direction of the greater force.
