Air Resistance slows the parachute down.
A parachute is slowed down by air resistance.
Because it catches the air, and slows you down.
if the parachute is wider there will be more air resistance which slows things down and if there are holes the air can pass through which decreases air resistance. so the wider it is the slower it is.the lighter it is the slower it is
It slows the parachute down, so that the skydiver can land safely
No. In many movies it appears that someone opening a parachute flies up in the air. However, this is because of the perspective of the camera, which continues falling while the person slows down. Gravity continues to pull the person down to the ground, the parachute only slows them down.
It does not 'keep you in the air' a parachute slows down your rate of descent by traping air under the canopy.
its not circle its drag
air resistance , maybe!
The parachute creates pockets of air so the diver slows down.
The cloth surface area and the air rubs together causing friction or drag which slows the parachute down.
A parachute will slow down a free-fall by catching the air rushing past you. It's large, bag-like shape greatly contributes to the air resistance working against the gravitational pull, and so slows your fall down a point that it is no longer dangerous.
Well, because the air catches on to the parachute and it slows it down faster
A skydiver - he uses a parachute that slows him down as a result of air resistance acting on the surface of the parachute
the magnitude of the skydivers acceleration is zero as he is decelerating by opening his parachute!
Yes, It depends on the speed but it slows it down.
The two main forces acting upon a parachute when it falls is gravity and wind resistance. Gravity pushes the parachute down, however wind resistance slows the fall by pushing the opposite way to gravity.
To calculate this, you divide the change in velocity, by the time.
It is 66.66... (repeating) metres per second2.
No you cannot get a parachute in gta vice city stories.you can have similar mods that slows down your falling speed.
they spread out so they can have more control over their decent it also slows them down so if they need to they can open their parachute safely
80 m/s2 up
It slows down their fall so when they reach the ground their legs or any other part of the body will not be broken.
