Alright. We got this extra credit assignment from physics class. And basically we are supposed to build a parachute using plastic bag with an egg attached to the strings that are attached to the parachute. And our physics teachers is going to stand on the roof of the school building and throw it out to see if it works fine. And when it lands on the ground without the egg breaking, we get full credits. Okay, so you get the idea.
We got the parachute and all. But we are struggling on the research work.
I need to know things like "physics" behind this parachute. Any information relating to physics that can understand how this parachute works. Can someone help me out?
