Parachutes: Does Size Matter

Physics and Astronomy

My project is about parachutes. I'm wondering if larger parachutes will work better? I chose this project because I use parachutes when I launch model rockets with my Dad. My results showed the larger parachute worked better. Parachutes are used by pilots for dropping cargo and by NASA for landing stuff on other planets.
