Solution

The spherical shape of raindrops is due to Surface tension of rainwater 

Explanation:

Raindrops start to form in a roughly spherical structure due to the surface tension of water. This surface tension is the "skin" of a body of water that makes the molecules stick together. The cause is the weak hydrogen bonds that occur between water molecules.
