An umbrella with a diameter of 1 m turns 22 rev every 44 seconds. If it's 1.5 m from the ground, calculate the time it takes for a drop to reach the ground and the distance away from the umbrella a person should stand so as to not get wet.


For this problem I made a = (0, -g) and used the equation Vyo= 1.5 - g(t^2)/2. And made Vyo=0 so, solving for t, I got sqrt(3/g).
Then v=2pir/T,so (22x2pi)/44s = pi rev/s
so w= pi rev/s
Then, using the equation v=Rw , v = (.5m)(pi rev/s) = pi/2 m/s

After that I didn't know what to do, so if I made any errors above, please let me know. I think for finding the distance I would use the equation D = sqrt(R^2 = Xmax^2) but I don't know how I could incorporate that into the problem

Thank you

    The drops begin to move with horizontal speed
    v(x)=2•π•n•R=2•π•N•R/t=
    =2•π•22•0.5/44=1.57 m/s
    The time for falling down is
    t=sqrt(2h/g) = sqrt(2•1.5/9.8)=0.55 s.
    L=v(x) •t =1.57•0.55 =0.87 m
