1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Raindrops fall 1800 m from a cloud to the ground. If they were not slowed by air resistence, how fast would the drops be moving when they struck the ground? 2. Relevant equations x(t)= initial position + final velocity * time v(t)= (acceleration * time) + initial velocity x(t)= .5 * (acceleration * (time^2)) + (initial velocity * time) + inital position x= initial position * (average velocity * time) average velocity= (final velocity - initial velocity) / (2) (final velocity^2) - (initial velocity^2) = 2 * acceleration * change in position 3. The attempt at a solution My answer is 187.83 m/s which is shown to be correct. It goes on the ask if it would be safe to walk outside during a rainstorm. My guess of course would be no, but it's only a one shot question. What do you think?
