  • It is an application of Newton’s thirds law of motion i.e. for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.


  • In this, the atmospheric air is made to accelerate as it passes through the engine. 

  • The force which provides this acceleration has an equal effect in the opposite direction acting on the apparatus which  produces the acceleration. 

  • In jet propulsion engines/ propellers propel the aircraft by thrusting a large weight of air backwards.

    • In  the form of a large air slipstream at comparatively low speed.

    • The other in the form of a jet of gas at very high speed.
