    Action/Reaction forces question

    Hey, I just have a question regarding action/reaction forces.
    I have an assignment question and we have to state all of the a/r forces exerted on a car or exerted by the car as it drives "at a high speed" (if that matters) along a road.

    I have the action of the tires pushing on the road, and the reaction of the road pushing back on the tires. I also have the force of the gas pedal/engine/whatever pushing the car forward, and wind resistance pushing back. I don't know if there are any more, but I can't think of any.

    Any reassurance that I covered them all?

    Is this assignment for a grade?

    It's worth 1 out of 20 for the assignment, yes haha.. It is probably very easy and trivial but I just freak out if I lose even a portion of a point on easy questions.

    It is forum policy not knowingly to help with any question that counts towards a final grade. I'm afraid we can't help you with this one.
