If a man expresses an opinion in the forest without a woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

"If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it does it make a sound?"

Just sayin'. :lol:

I did not. since I have never seen or experienced recoil from a mortarů.hence the question.

It's still a contained explosion and every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Would a mortar have to be held to your shoulder and fired to have recoil?
It's just such a strange question that I can't understand why it was asked. Why would the explosion in a mortar not have an equal and opposite reaction?

One of those old mortars is just a very short barreled cannon. Do cannons have recoil? I still don't understand why you thought they may not have recoil.

cannons move from recoil mortars do not. (unless they dig into ground upon which they rest)

Better yet, why would you think it would not have recoil?
I'm with Mr. Newton on this one.

I never fired an 18th century mortar, but I've fired many a 60mm, 81mm and 4.2 mortar to tell you that the base plate absorbs the recoil. I've also dug many a base plate out of the mud as a result.

that's what I have been finding. baseplate takes up the shock. the big old ones had huge base plates.

I don't know much about 18th century mortars but would say Newton's 3rd law would cover that.
So yes.
