Statement of a problem № 42194


Some parachutes have holes in them to allow air to move smoothly through the chute. Without the holes, the air gathered under the chute as the parachutist falls is sometimes released from under the edges of the chute alternately and periodically from one side and then the other. Why might this periodic release of air cause a problem?
