How does the force of gravity on a raindrop compare with the air drag it encounters when it falls at constant velocity?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The force of gravity acts on the raindrop in vertically downward direction whereas the air drag force opposes the motion of the raindrop. The weight of the drop is a con...
