A drop of water in a zero-g environment (as in the InternationalSpace Station) will assume a spherical shape as shown in Fig.P3.18a. A raindrop in the cartoons is typically drawn as in Fig.P3.18b. The shape of an actual raindrop is more nearly like thatshown in Fig. 3.18c. Discuss why these shapes are as indicated.
