On a certain day, rain was falling vertically with a speed 30 m/s. The wind starts blowing after some time with a speed 10 m/s in N to S direction. In which direction should a boy, waiting at bus stop, hold his umbrella to save himself from rain?

Speed of rainfall = 30 m/s

Speed of wind  = 10 m/s

The rain will appear to fall in the direction of the resultant of rain and wind, to the boy waiting at the bus stop.

Let θ be the angle which the resultant velocity subtends with the vertical.

From the figure,

Therefore, the boy should hold the umbrella at angle orth of vertical.
