but he broke that law with magic. that is the only one
that isn't working right. Otherwise he might as well make it so when the guy punches the whole universe collapses because every other law is broken as well.
I can't believe I am actually debating about this [it just seems silly to debate about is all] ... I was just saying that if some of the momentum can't go back into his hand it has to go with the rest of it. Normally when someone punches momentum goes BOTH back into your fist and into the person you hit.
But in the case that some of it can't
go back into your first, it will have to go forward, with the rest of it. There are things designed to reflect most of the energy created by an impact at the object hit even today; it really isn't any different here except that all the energy is reflected back.
In fact, it doesn't even need to be all
. It could just reflect most of the energy and make the amount that the gauntlet rebounds by negligible. That would keep Newton's Law intact as well. Either way it has to go somewhere.
Again, if it just disappeared then he would have to break two
laws. But if he only breaks the one
it will also give the guy using it more of a wallop, which it wouldn't if the momentum going back into his hand just disappeared.
