Investigating Air Resistance

Date: 1st Mar 2017 @ 10:21pm

Today we were looking at how spacecraft renter the Earth's atmosphere. We learned that parachutes are deployed to slow the fall.

We decided to investigate whether or not the size of the parachute affected the time it takes to fall.

After planning and carrying out our investigations, we found that the larger the surface area of the parachute, the longer it took to fall to the Earth.
