PVC plastic (like the one used as to cover tables)
Linen cloth (like the ones used to cover the bed)
Note that there aint any holes (some purposedly made, usually for decoration of tables, etc.) on the cloth which by all means its all plain linen
String: A strong but quite heavy string used to sew shoes
There are eight positions (octagonal-like) which is used to tied to the load
Load: A masking tape
Assuming that the reading was taken when there is no wind blowing, which will fall first?
When I launched it from a 3rd floor building the plastic parachute falls with time taken of:
4.39, 4.96, 4.74, 4.09, 4.94 (in seconds)
The linen parachute falls at a time of:
5.733, 4.47, 5.32, 6.45, 6.24 (in seconds)
So, is the reading somwhat logical, considering that the surface area of cloth is actually more than of plastic?
