Parachute fun!!!!

University of Bristol class were investigating whether the size of a parachute affected the speed that it fell. We found out that the bigger the parachute the slower it falls. This is because the bigger parachutes are able to create more lift because of air resistance! Enjoy the videos below.

 

Testing the parachutes
