Question

Give the magnitude and direction of the net force acting on a drop of rain falling down with a constant speed

Solution 1

 Zero net force

The rain drop is falling with a constant speed. Hence, it acceleration is zero. As per Newton’s second law of motion, the net force acting on the rain drop is zero.

Solution 2

As the drop of rain is falling with constant speed, in accordance with first law of motion, the net force on the drop of rain is zero.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
