Rain- can you measure the speed and force of raindrops?-What is the effect on soil, with and without ground cover? Could you simulate the effect of rain?

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of
The scope of this helpdesk is to answer subject related queries which are relevant to understanding concepts and solving problems. Hence we regret that we would not be able to answer your query.
But We can determine the speed and force of raindrops.

This can be done because speed and force of rain drops are two factors that affect the rate of erosion.

We can simulate the effect of rain on soil, with and without grass and vegetation.

You can undertake a project wherein you can simulate a rain generator to test the effect of raindrops with different sizes or different speeds on soil erosion.

You can also perform an experiment to see how vegetation and organic matter affects the rate of erosion caused by rain.
