Parachute investigation!

16th September 2016

 

Today, in science, we have been making parachutes to learn more about air resistance.

We first decided on the variable that we were going to change, which would be the area of the parachute. We then predicted which parachute we thought would fall the slowest due to the effects of air resistance. We measured the area of each parachute, before timing how long it took to fall from a 2 metre height. We repeated each drop three times before finding the average time each size parachute took to fall to the floor.
