For the soldiers working on high altitudes, packed food are generally dropped with the help of a parachute. Why?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 1st Aug, 2014, 11:17: AM
Due to large structure of parachute, it experience a large viscous force, and hence, while descending through air it acquires very small terminal velocity. Due to this low velocity of decent, the packed food lands safely without being scattered or damaged.
