When a train's velocity is 12.0 m/s eastward, raindrops that are falling vertically with respect to the earth make traces that are inclined 30.0 degrees to the verical on the windoes of the train.
A. What is the horizontal componenet of a drop's velocity with respect to the earth?
B. What is the horizontal component of a drops velocity with respect to the train?
(r/t)= veolocity of rain with respect to the ground(earth)
(g/t) velocity of the train with respect to the ground but negative.
The Attempt at a Solution
For part a well since it says the rain drops vertically with respect to the earth that must mean that it only has a vertical component.
For part b I am not sure how I would go about that to calculate it.
