Let’s investigate!

Friday 07 December 2018

This week, we’ve been investigating air resistance in our Forces topic.

‘The bigger the parachute, the slower it will fall.’

In groups, we investigated if this was true or not.

We discovered that the bigger parachute fell to the ground slower than the smaller parachute. We concluded that the bigger parachute had a larger surface area, therefore there’s more air resistance. The more air resistance there is, the slower an object will move.
