Air Resistance in 5W

What makes an effective parachute? 

In science, we have been learning about forces such as air-resistance. We set out an enquiry to find out how the size of parachute impacts the effectiveness of it.


We found that the larger parachute made our army man fall slower. We think this is because the larger the parachute, the more wind resistance there is.
