The Ice Sea Pirates - Frida Nilsson
This week in science, we experimented with air resistance and made our very own parachutes! (see above). We used multi-link as our parachuter and explored how different parachutes fall to the ground. We found that the bigger the surface area of the parachute, the more air resistance and therefore a slower descend to the ground!
We also found out that objects with the same mass and shape fall to the ground at the same time! If you drop a tennis ball and a cricket ball (the cricket ball is 3 TIMES heavier then the tennis ball) at the same time, they will land on the ground at the same time regardless of its mass! This is because there is the same amount of air resistance acting against them as they are the same shape - mind boggling!!
