Minute Physics: In the rain is it better to walk or run?

I love this guy. He does Minute Physics. The combination of thoughtfully presented narrative and his drawing animation means that he can present complex ideas on You Tube in just a couple of minutes.

So, if you are in the rain, is it better to walk or to run if you don’t want to get wet? I had to watch this a couple of times. The answer is cool.

  • I remember at some point watching the Mythbusters episode where they ”bust” that running in the rain will get you less wet than walking will. From that moment on, I’ve always patiently walked under the nearest room during flash rain storms rather than sprint with everyone else.http://mythbustersresults.com/episode38, they’re tests using artificial rain gave a false negative, and under real rain situations, running does get you less wet than walking does.

  • I thought of myth busters as more entertainment than science. What are your thoughts?
