Hi, I've got a project for year 9 maths at my school where we got to choose our own topic and basically have to research most of the maths involved in it. I chose skydiving and parachuting. I'm getting a bit lost and having a little difficulty in finding useful information on the web, so I was wondering if anyone here could offer a little generic help. I don't have any particular question, I just kind of need a push in the right direction. Anything on terminal velocity, air resistance, factors put into consideration in the construction of parachutes would be fantastic. I think I'd also find any formulas/equations very useful. Thank you so much, I'll be eternally grateful to any assistance given.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
