the more holes in a parachut the less resistance the parachute causes so the more speed the parachuter can pick up causing him to travle at a faster speed with more holes in his parachute

Does the amount of holes in a parachute affect the speed it travels?

yes, if the parachute has holes then it might go slow to were it's traveling

Does the size of the hole in the parachute affect its preformence?

If the hole is bigger the parachute speed will decrease

What doesn't affect rate of descent for a parachute?

The price of coffee at Walmart doesn't affect the descent of a parachute. Maybe better to ask what does affect the speed of descent. Those would be suspended weight, area of the parachute, design of the parachute, and air density.

Does the size of a parachute affect it's speed?

Yes, A larger parachute will catch more air and create more drag than a smaller parachute

Does the size of a parachute affect its speed?

yes it does-the bigger it is the more air resistance it is trapping

What design factors affect the speed of descent of a parachute?

surface area of the parachute will affect the decent. eg large parachute's catch more air. also the shape of the parachute, more of an arc the less air it will catch do. the best paracute is a round one for air however they are terrible for steering.

How does the surface area of a parachute affect the speed it falls at?

The surface area of a parachute can be different sizes and weights. If the surface is smooth then the you will fall faster because the texture is smooth and the air will slip by it. if it is rough then it will be slower because the the air will come into the parachute slower.

Is the speed of light effected by black holes?

Nope.. Light always travels at the same speed. However, black holes do affect the trajectory of the photons, hense diverting the direction of the light.

How does size affect the speed of a falling parachute?

The larger the size of the parachute the more air resistance is caused because its larger surface traps more air. Becuase there is more air resistance the larger the parachute the slower it travels to the ground. The smaller the parachute the faster it falls to the ground for the opposite reason.

What design factors affect the stability of a parachute?

Parachutist weight. Gravity. Wind flow. Landing speed. Jump height. Weather.

Does the size of a parachute affect its performance?

Yes! I would not want to jump with a miniaturized parachute...

What does the friction of air do to parachute jumper or a pendulum?

It makes the parachute, jumper,and a pendulum to decrease speed.

Why does a person loss speed if he opens parachute?

The parachute will increase air resistance, compared to the person alone.

Does wind effect a parachute?

Wind primairly affects a parachute at landing causing turbulance, and where ground speed becomes a factor. If flying a ram air parachute with the wind, your ground speed will be wind speed + canopy speed, so not a good configuration to land. Also, wind causes turbulance, which can collapse a canopy.

What is the slowest parachute made of?

Parachutes are not rated by their speed. A parachute works by increasing the air resistance of a suspended falling body or object. The greater the mass of the object the larger the area of the parachute must be to reduce the speed to an acceptable level.

Does the third law of motion affect a parachute?

yes it does cause if there was no gravity then ur parachute would be going up

What is the skydiver's downward velocity?

Maximum speed is about 220 to 230mph and can be achieved after about 20 seconds of freefall. Normal parachute opening speed should be not greater that 120mph to avoid damage to the parachute
