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 m/s , and you notice while you’re running that the raindrops appear to be falling at an angle of about 30 degrees from the vertical. What’s the vertical speed of the raindrops?
