Air resistance experiment

Check out our air resistance experiment!

On Friday, we tested how the size of a parachute would affect the speed at which it fell. We made 3 size parachutes and dropped them from the same height. We found the bigger the parachute, the slower it fell which proved our predictions correct that the bigger the surface area, the more air resistance it will have and therefore the slower it will fall!
