From the sky

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Peo­ple in this part of the coun­try have seen lots of rain fall in the past five days. But do do you know how fast do rain­drops fall? Not in­clud­ing wind-driven rain, rain­drops fall be­tween seven and 18 miles per hour (three and eight me­ters per sec­ond) in still air. The range in speed de­pends on the size of the rain­drop. Air fric­tion breaks up rain­drops when they ex­ceed 18 miles per hour. From www.an­gelfire.com/ moon/weath­er_trivia/
