Explain action and reaction of force , Mechanical Engineering

Explain action and reaction of force:

Two bodies A and B are in contact at point 'O'. Body A

Press against body B. Thus action of body A on the body B is F. Reaction of the Body B on body

A is R. From the Newton's third law of motion (which is action = reaction), both the forces are equal there for

F = R

That is, Action = Reaction

Or, Any pressure on support causes an equal and opposite pressure from support such that action and reaction are two equal and opposite forces.
