Car Sail

Product Code: ME-9595


Using the various sails, the relationship between surface area and terminal velocity can be determined.

Terminal velocity is related to both the surface area and the mass of an object in motion. Students should compare the motion of the cart without a sail to its motion with the sails. As the surface area of the sail increases, the cart will more closely approach a terminal velocity.
