Abstract or Summary
  • Nondimensionalized equations of motion for waterdrops, not necessarily obeying Stokes's law, are derived and used to calculate the response of various size drops to changes in horizontal wind speed. We find that (1) cloud drops respond almost instantaneously to changes in wind speed, whereas raindrops require considerable time to adjust, (2) one can ignore the dependence of drag coefficient on Reynolds number in small shear, and (3) the probability of collision between raindrops and cloud drops is likely to be increased very slightly by the presence of wind shear.
