Engineering Riddle – No. 2 (Physics) “You push on me, I push right back…”


From in a tube, a fire lit,
Great heat and flames, from end emit,
The force to make this fluid flow,
The same will make the engine go.
 
You push on me, I push right back,
You give a blow, I’ll give a smack,
What ever your force, there’s none I lack.
You push on me, I push right back.
 
When with paddle, a boat you row,
What on earth, makes you go?
The water and the paddle see,
I push on you, you push on me.
 
What am I?
