The Parachute

Students discuss parachutes and write a procedure to determine the effect of different size parachutes and different masses on the time it takes the masses to fall. They record all their data from their experiment then write three observations they made, plot a graph, interpret the graph, and evaluate the reliability of the data and sources of error.
