A person looking out the window of a stationary train notices that raindrops are falling vertically down at a speed of 8.2 m/s relative to the ground. When the train moves at a constant velocity, the raindrops make an angle of 62° when they move past the window. How fast is the train moving?

  • Physics - ,

    Wouldn't tan 62= V/6.2

    Of course, it is not clear how the angle is measured, either to the vertical or horizontal.

    opps, typo, tan 62=V/8.2

  • Physics - ,

    15.42
