So, here's the question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The speed of falling rain is the same 10m above ground as it is just before it hits the ground. What does this tell you about whether or not rain encounters air resistance?

So here's my attempt:

Since the speed of the falling rain is just the same 10m above ground as it is right before it hits the ground, then the rain clearly does not encounter air resistance. Air resistance doesn't have as much, or any effect on compact objects. The rain is solely under the influence of gravity and the object is falling at a constant acceleration rate of 10m/s(squared) so therefore it will be the same at 10m above the ground, and just before ithits the ground.

any suggestions?
