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?

  • physics - ,

    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.
