Rain is falling steadily but there is no wind. You are in an automobile that moves on a straight, flat highway at a constant speed of 80 km/hr. You see from the drops on the side window that the rain is falling at an angle of 58° measured from vertical (relative to the car). What is the vertical velocity of the raindrops?
