In this activity, students will understand the following (1) gravity is the force of attraction that causes objects to fall toward the center of the earth, (2) air resistance, or air friction, can slow down the acceleration of a falling object, (3) the area 'fronting the wind' affects the amount of air resistance a falling object encounters, (4) terminal speed is the speed at which the downward pull of gravity is balanced by the equal and upward opposing force of air resistance for a falling object. This would be a suitable activity for small groups. Copyright 2005 International Technology Education Association
