Leonardo DaVinci’s Parachute Design

The original design was sketched by Da Vinci in a notebook in 1483.

An accompanying note read:

"If a man is provided with a length of gummed linen cloth with a length of 12 yards on each side and 12 yards high, he can jump from any great height whatsoever without injury."

  • Design a data collection table to record your results
slide8

Re-design your model

  • Choose your shapes or combination of shapes you would like to use to create your parachute.
  • Create your model
  • Calculate the surface area and compare it to the surface area of the DaVinci model
slide9

Reporting your launch

Which launch was more successful and why? – Calculate averages and range to compare your sets of data

What other shapes do you think would work well?

How would you change your design if you could use any resources you wanted?
