You’re standing outside on a windless day when raindrops begin to fall straight down. You run for shelter at a speed of 5.3 , and you notice while you’re running that the raindrops appear to be falling at an angle of about 30 from the vertical. What’s the vertical speed of the raindrops?
tan 30 = Vy/Vx = 0.5773
Solve for Vy
Vx is the speed she runs.
You need to learn to provide dimensions along with your numbers. You omitted m/s and degrees.
