Measuring Air Resistance in a Computerized Laboratory.
Takahashi, Ken; Thompson, D.
American Journal of Physics, v67 n8 p709-11 Aug 1999
Presents an activity that involves dropping spherical party balloons onto a sonic motion sensor to show that the force associated with the air resistance is proportional to both the square of the velocity and the cross-sectional area of the balloon. (Author/WRM)
