Hello Aditya,


As the water drop falls from the atmosphere, its acceleration will be the same as Acceleration due to gravity as the only force that  attracts it to ground is gravitational.


So the a= g in this case.


Therefore , distance travelled by the drop can be obtained from the formula.

s=ut + 1/2 at^2.

u=0; a=g



Distance travelled = 1/2gt^2.


Hope this clarifies it.
