Newton had given third law of motion in the Principia (1686) at page no 19-20 without mathematical equations, this hard fact is accepted by Edward Cohen [1,2]. Now it is globally taught from the school level that ball rebounds upward obeying third law of Motion. But it is qualitative observation. This aspect needs to be confirmed quantitatively. The qualitative explanation is philosophical but quantitative one is scientific. This aspect is discussed here about conducting experiments.
