We’re making paper planes in class for a competition. We all started this with the question “what is the optimal design for a paper plane?”. Now here are my 3 hypothesis. 1. I hypothesise that planes with a short length reletive to its wingspan will fly in the air for 30-45 seconds. 2. I hypothesise that planes that have a big wingspan compared to its length like the eagle will stay in the air longer. 3. I hypothesise that planes that are narrow when they fly will have a long average distance. Below is the measurements of my planes.
Below is my paper planes in a video.
