Air Resistance and Friction

Physics learners experiment with three laboratory activities to learn about air resistance and friction. First, they use a hair dryer to move different sized spheres to determine the relationship between cross-sectional area and air resistance. They drop parachutes of different masses and measure velocity. Finally, they examine the friction of a box sliding across a surface. This resource comes complete with a materials list and assessment ideas.
