**drwls**, Thursday, July 28, 2011 at 6:00pmI am interpreting your first two sentences as meaning:

"A man running horizontally along a road, with velocity 8 km/hr, finds the rain falling in a vertically downward direction."

That statement implies that the rain has a horizontal component of 8 km/hr in the same direction the runner is running. When he runs at the same speed, the rain apears to come straight down.

If he increases his speed to 12 km/hr, there is a 4 km/hr relative velocity of wind into his face. The vertical component of the wind velcity, Vy, must such that 4/Vy = tan 30

Vy = 6.93 km/hr

Vx = 8.00 km/hr

Wind speed (magnitude) = 10.58 km/hr
