Class 8 have continued their science work based around different forces. Having explored how gravity works, we are now learning about the force of air resistance. The pupils have been researching how a parachute works, and how the air resistance experienced helps to provide a soft landing. We found out that the force takes place here when the air comes into contact with the parachute cloth. The pupils have been experimenting with different size parachutes, and seeing how this has an effect on the air resistance.
