Air Resistance

In our science lessons, we have been focusing on forces. So far, we have looked at friction, gravity and air resistance. We decided to carry out an experiment to test the air resistance of different materials. We created parachutes using different materials, and tested them against one another, to see which one was the slowest and safest. We looked at dependent and independent variables, and we tried hard to ensure we carried out a fair test when considering our controlled variables.
