-Unless acted upon by a net external force, a body, at rest, will remain at rest and a body, in motion, will remain in motion.


the pipe is itself a body.
if you are or are not capable of understanding that is your problem.

I have clearly shown all the possible forces involved and according to the forces
WHICH IS WHAT THE LAWS ARE ABOUT.

the pipe will move just as I described.

your clinging to your STUPID EXCUSSES with missinterpreted laws will do you no good.


BTW , I do agree that momentum is conserved also.

there is clear conservation occurring between the pipe and the weights.

the force that propels the weights is divided between the pipe and the weights.

the momentum is also divided between the pipe and the weights.

I cant help it if you cant understand that , its exactly what would happen in this situation
in zero g.
