Science practical - parachutes

We did a science practical using paper towels and string to create parachutes. We tested them on the pirate ship to see how quickly they fell, and we used this in order to think about what air resistance is, how it affects things, and why parachutes help people to fall slowly through the air.


Can you think of another force that is affecting the parachute?
