# Raindrops of radius 1 mm and mass 4 mg are falling with a speed of 30 m/s on the head of a bald person. The drops splash on the head and come to rest. Assuming equivalently that the drops cover a distance equal to their radii on the head, estimate the force exerted by each drop on the head.

Answer :

Given: initial velocity

Final velocity

Mass of the droplet=

Radius of the droplet =

Distance covered by the drop on the head,

Using the equation of motion

Thus, acceleration

Thus, the force

PREVIOUSTwo blocks A and B of mass mA and m9 respectively are kept in contact on a frictionless table. The experimenter pushes the block A from behind so that the blocks accelerate. If the block A exerts a force F on the block B, what is the force exerted by the experimenter on A?NEXTA particle of mass 0.3 kg is subjected to a force F = - k x with k = 15 N/m. What will be its initial acceleration if it is released from a point x = 20 cm?
