Figure shows a man with a parachute. Name the force which is responsible for his downward motion. Will he come down with the same speed without the parachute?

AcademicPhysicsNCERTClass 8

The gravitational force of the earth is responsible for the downward motion of the parachute that attracts objects. If the man comes down without a parachute then the speed will not be the same as the air friction will be very less which will cause the speed of the man to become very high.
