How does parachutes work?

Report as

The parachute is a fabric bag attached to someone. It is designed so that when someone jumps out of an airplane, the bag fills up with air. This area of the bag creates air resistance that slows the person falling. Think of how slowly a feather falls because it's area is large in comparison to its weight.
