    Parachutes Investigation Aim The aim of this investigation is to find out how one chosen variable can affect the rate of descent of a parachute. There are many different factors that can be taken into consideration and varied to see what has the best effects on the rate of descent. The options where: a) The size of the canopy, b) The weight pulling on the parachute, c) The length of the chords, d) The shape of the canopy Also the forces acting on the parachute had to be taken

    Parachute Experiment

    Parachute Experiment Prediction My prediction is that as the weight of plastercine increases the time taken for the parachute to reach the ground will decrease I think this because when the weight has just been dropped it is going slowly, but as it falls through the air it will gain speed until it reaches its terminal velocity. The weight does not change but the A.R gets bigger until it equals out the downwards force of gravity, so when the weight is larger it will have to fall further

    Parachute Investigation Aim: The aim of this investigation is to see how the factors of terminal velocity affect it. Equipment: The equipment/ apparatus required for this investigation are: ü Large plastic bag-to make the actual parachute ü Two Styrofoam cups-represents “person”, holds the sand & measure sand ü Sand-acts as the weight of the “person” in cup ü 4 white string-attaches the parachute to one of the Styrofoam cups ü Small Ziploc bag-to contain sand and prevent from

    Investigating a Factor that Affects the Rate of Decent of a Parachute Aim- To investigate one factor that affects the rate of decent of a parachute. Plan There are many factors that affect the rate of decent of a parachute, some of these are: The weight of the object on the end of a parachute, the weight of the parachute, the length of the strings on the end of the parachute, the surface area of the parachute, and the shape of the parachute. As we were only instructed to investigate one of

    Gravitational Pull and Parachute Investigation Aim The aim of the experiment is to investigate how each of several different weights of varying mass attached to a parachute in turn can influence the gravitational pull and air resistance forces acting on it, consequently affecting the time it takes to reach the ground when dropped from a specific height. Preliminary Work Forces are measured in Newtons (N), named after Isaac Newton who invented this unit. We cannot see them but instead

    A Brief Overview of D-Day Parachute and Glider Operations Airborne troops led the D-Day landings in a combined parachute and glider assault, to throw a net of protection around the Normandy beaches, where a massive invasion force would sweep ashore and advance into Europe. Among their initial objectives, the British airborne units were to destroy a German gun battery that threatened the lives of seaborne troops, and protect the left flank of the sea assault by seizing strategic points

    Physics of Skydiving

    The Forces at Work Gravity ... God OBVIOUSLY intended for us to skydive. After all He DID create gravity! So exactly what forces are acting on the skydiver? Well, of course there's the obvious one, the force of gravity of the Earth. This force is exerted on everything on the Earth and is exerted on the skydiver even though there is no direct contact between the skydiver and the Earth. This type of force, when two objects exert forces on one another even though they are not touching, is known

    so it had to be abandoned. The airplane pilot strapped on a parachute and said to them, "there is only four parachutes but I am taking one." Bill Clinton grabbed the second one and said, "I am the most important man and my country needs me so I am taking one too." Then, Bill Gates grabbed the third one and said, "I am the smartest man in the world and my people need me." So, Bill (a kid) was just looking... at the fourth parachute and Billy Gram said to him, "I am an old man and you are young

    Terminal Velocity of a Paper Helicopter Introduction. Terminal velocity is the resulting occurance when acceleration and resistance forces are equal. As an example, a freefalling parachutist before the parachute opens reaches terminal velocity at about 120mph, but when the parachute is opened, terminal velocity is reached at 15mph, which is a safe speed to hit the ground at. This experiment will be no different, as I will be examining the terminal velocity of a freefalling paper helicopter
