Event Title

TERMINAL VELOCITY PROJECT: PARACHUTE

Grade Level

10th - 12th Grade : Science

Start Date

3-3-2023 9:40 AM

End Date

Description

This project is meant for a high school physics course where the students have studied Newton's Universal Law of Gravitation, Newton's Second law, and free fall motion. The students construct their own parachute, record a video in LoggerPro of the parachute in motion, and analyze the data to calculate the drag coefficient of their parachute.
