Problem 3DQ

When rain falls from the sky, what happens to its momentum as it hits the ground? Is your answer also valid for Newton’s famous apple?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 3DQ Step 1 of 1: The momentum is defined as the product of mass and velocity. I.e p=mv Where m is the mass of the drop v is the velocity of the drop When the rain drop hits the ground the momentum changes. dp/dt = m (dv/dt) or The gravitational potential to kinetic heat. Its momentum is transferred to ground
