A raindrop of mass 3.34 x 10^-5 kg falls vertically at constant speed under the influence of gravity and air resistance. Model the drop as a particle.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) As it falls 50 m, what is the work done on the raindrop by the graviatational force?

J

(b) What is the work done on the raindrop by air resistance?

J

For (a), I tried -mg delta y, to get -3.34x10^-5(9.8)(50), but the answer turned out to be wrong. Please help
