Post Parachute Designs

I was thinking of doing an experiment on different parachute designs and which would be more effective, but i dont really know a lot about paracutes and stuff.
I need to get research done and I don't really know how to do my experiment, and i'm in trouble cause my teacher wants a paper on background research n experimental design on nov. 17! so if anyone has any ideas id really b grateful

Red face This sounds like a good idea

This sounds like a good idea, for research you could go to the library and use the web and come up with a few simple parachute designs. Once you have these you can use test models (if you need more help making them just ask) and have several trials per chute and see what results you get. Record how fast they fall, if they lessen or greaten the time of impact, etc.
ooo ooo
