# 14.2: Unit 8 Lab Extension- Quantitative Numerical Modeling of Falling Motion with Air Resistance*


## Numerical Modeling

Do the Unit 8 Lab Extension Activity to determine the drag coefficient of a coffee filter.

Use a spreadsheet or your favorite coding language to build the numerical model for skydiving motion described a the end of Unit 8.

Use the coffee filter drag coefficient you found, employ your program to model the acceleration, velocity and potion of a three nested coffee filters during a fall.

Measure the acceleration, velocity and position experienced by the set of coffee filters during a fall.

Graph both your measured and predicted acceleration on a single graph.

Graph both your measured and predicted velocity on a single graph.

Graph both your measured and predicted position on a single graph.

Does your model do well at prediction the coffee filter motion?
