Year 9 Science Students Achieve Terminal Velocity

Year 9 Core Science classes have finished the semester with a Physics unit where the terminal velocity of parachutes was investigated. After researching air resistance and the effect of deploying parachutes, students developed a hypothesis based around surface area, shape or hanging mass of a parachute.

Constructions have been tested (safely!). Their analysis of precision within the results as well as an explanation of results with respect to physical phenomena is progressing nicely!
