When a train’s velocity is 12.0 m/s eastward, raindrops that are falling vertically with respect to the earth make traces that are inclined 30.0 degrees to the vertical on the windows of the train.Note: some of you may think that the drops are inclined due to friction of the window as the water drops slide down the window. While that is the case in reality, you should ignore this effect in this problem. Rather, imagine that the water drops are just slightly away from the window so they do not touch. Nevertheless, due to the forward motion of the train, the direction of the water drops will appear to an observer on the train as inclined with respect to the vertical line.What is the horizontal component of a drop’s velocity with respect to the earth?Answer in m/s.What is the horizontal component of a drop’s velocity with respect to the train?Answer in m/s.What is the magnitude of the velocity of the raindrop with respect to the earth?Answer in m/s.What is the magnitude of the velocity of the raindrop with respect to the train?Answer in m/s.

(a) As the drop is falling vertically, horizontal component of drop with respect to earth = 0(b) Horizontal component of drop with respect to train = Magnitude of train’s velocity withopposite…
