A raindrop of mass 3.07 X 10^-5 kg falls vertically at constant speed under the influence of gravity and air resistance. Model the drop as a particle.

a. As it falls 50m, what is the work done on the raindrop by the gravitational force?

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

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

a. Fg=-mgj=(3.07X10^-5)(-9.8m/s^2j)

=-3.0086x10^-4

delta r=???

w=????

Could someone please tell me if this is correct so far and help me find delta r?

Thank you very much
