Why Does Rain Fall In Drops And Not As A Continuous Stream?

Solution

Rain droplets are water that is condensed as a result of evaporation. Therefore, rain is also called precipitation.

Rain always fall in drops and not as a continuous stream. This is mainly due to the surface tension of water caused due to the tendency of water molecules to stick together. Therefore, larger drops split into smaller ones.
