I have an answer that does not seem right:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The raindrop falls from 1700m high with constant acceleration of 9.81 m / s^2

What is the velocity of the raindrop not considering any resistance?

i used y - yo = vo * t - (1/2) g t^2 to get the time to hit the ground at 18.62 seconds.

I then plugged that into v = vo + a t to get 182.63 m / s which seems kind of fast for a raindrop, right? Can anyone help? Please?
