The drag of the object.

Drag can be used to slow down an object. The higher the drag the more the object slows down.

using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class ExampleClass : MonoBehaviour { public Rigidbody rb;

void Start() { rb = GetComponent<Rigidbody>(); }

void OpenParachute() { rb.drag = 20; }

void Update() { if (Input.GetButton("Space")) OpenParachute(); } }
