Projection Under uniform Acceleration

Rain is falling vertically with a velocity of 25 ms-1. A woman rides a bicycle with a speed of 10 ms-1 in the north to south direction. What is the direction (angle with vertical) in which she should hold her umbrella to safe herself from rain?


 Here, vr=25 ms-1,vw=10 ms-1 Velocity of rain w.r.t. woman  Let vr/w make an angle θ with vertical.   tanθ=vwvk=102.5=0.4 She should hold her umbrella at an angle of θ = tan-1(0.4) with the vertical towards south.
