As long as it is not accelerating (going faster and faster, or slower and slower), the forces on the parachute are balanced. Initially, the parachute will accelerate - in this case the forces are unbalanced. It will continue accelerating, until the force of gravitation is balanced by the force of resistance.
yes it does
Parachute has more drag (air resistance)
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.
wouldn't the air trapped in the parachute quickly go out, then you will quickly fall until splat on the ground
The parachute of a rocket is used to slow down the rocket when it falls down.
it will start to change as the material gets thicker

The apex would be the center of the round parachute.
A parachute would open ABOVE Mars, just as it would above our planet
