A raindrop of initial mass Mo starts falling from rest under the influence of gravity. Assume that the drop gain mass from the cloud at a rate proportionnal to the product of its instantaneous mass and its instantaneous velocity: dM/dt = kMV where k is a constant. Show that the speed of the drop eventually becomes effectively constant, and give an expression for the terminal speed.
