We can’t see air, but it is made up of tiny molecules of nitrogen, oxygen, argon, water vapor, carbon dioxide, plus a few other gases. When we drop different shapes of paper, we’ll be able to observe the effects of air as the paper falls in all different ways. Does it go straight down? Does it “float”? Does it move quickly or slowly?
