The train runs at a speed of 14 m/s and raindrops draw lines on the windows, which form an angle of 60 degrees with the horizontal. What speed drops fall?

Correct answer:

v2 =  24.2487 m/s

Step-by-step explanation:

v1=14 m/s A=60   tanA=v2/v1=24.2487/14=0  v2=v1 tanA=v1 tan60° =14 tan60° =14 1.732051=24.249=24.2487 m/s
