This book contains graphs showing the motion of lab equipment in simulated conditions, as well as the motion of paper airplanes, a falling umbrella and plastic bag, and a radio-controlled helicopter. Data show free-fall, resistance due to air pressure, gliding, and flight in different patterns, including straight and curved flight typical of planes and helicopters. Additional data simulate flight in air pockets, landing, and crashing. These data can be used for lesson plans by teachers and parents.
