# Você perguntou: Which force is responsible for parachute coming down?

Contents

The name of force responsible for the downward motion of the parachute is force of gravity.

gravity

## What forces are acting on a parachute?

Parachute. There are two forces acting on a parachute with a parachutist: the force of gravity and the air resistance. Suppose that the air resistance is kv2, where v is the speed of descent, and k is a positive constant.

## Will he come down with the same speed without the parachute?

No,he will not come down with the same speed as the parachute because parachute traps the air and the air current of the trapped air exert an upward force on the parachute,which acts opposite to the gravitational pull.

## What is the direction of force of friction?

Friction is a force that opposes motion. When two objects are in contact, friction is acts in a direction opposite to the motion of the object.

## What are the effects of force on an object?

A force acting on an object causes the object to change its shape or size, to start moving, to stop moving, to accelerate or decelerate. When there’s the interaction between two objects they exert a force on each other, these exerted forces are equal in size but opposite in direction.

## How does applied force change the speed of an object?

If the force applied on the object is in the direction of its motion, the speed of the object increases. If the force is applied in the direction opposite to the direction of motion, then it results in a decrease in the speed of the object.

## What is the relation between direction of force of friction and direction of motion?

The force of friction acts on moving objects and its direction is opposite to the direction of motion.

## Do heavier parachutes fall faster?

As we make gravity stronger, the parachute will fall faster. … So if you have two parachutes with the same size and shape but made of different materials, one heavier than the other, the heavier parachute will fall faster.

## What keeps a parachute move slower?

The larger the parachute, the greater the drag force. In the case of these parachutes, the drag force is opposite to the force of gravity, so the drag force slows the parachutes down as they fall.
