(i) A cricket bat is 11 times longer than the scale in your geometry box. If the length of the scale is 15cm, what is the length of the cricket bat?

(ii) What can you tell about the motion of a raindrop when there is no wind? What if there is a wind blowing?

Expert Answer:

(i) Length of bat = 11 x 15cm = 165cm

                                           = 1.65m

(ii) When there is no wind, the raindrop falls down on a straight line, so its motion is rectilinear. When there is a wind, the raindrop is carried away while falling downward, so it will have a combination of many motions.
