So this week I was walking home one night from the school, it was late at night and it was snowing out, and with Max I was walking and watching the snow fall, and it made me think about the heavier objects falling faster lab. I began to question why the snow/hail will fall down slower then rain does.
When it is pouring outside you can hardly see the drops of rain because they are falling down so fast, it all looks like a blur, but even in a blizzard you can see individual snowflakes as they fall from the sky, as well as hail, and when there is only a light snow you can see them perfectly.
Why is it that snow falls so much slower then the rain? Does it have to deal with the weight and density of the rain being more than that of snow? Or is there some other factor which causes rain to pour, but snow only falls from the sky?
