The recoil of a bullet being fired from a gun is a good example, the action force is the gun pushing the bullet away from the gun and the reaction force is the bullet pushing back against the gun (recoil).

### Why does and object move if the action reaction forces are equal?

Action and reaction forces act on different objects. The forces on one of the objects can still be unbalanced.

### Why does and object move if the action-reaction forces are equal?

action = reaction, but they works in the different object
