Is this a reasonable question? Can’t drops come in all sizes?

Raindrops can come in many sizes, but nothing comes in “all” sizes. Basically, the size range for falling-out-of-a-cloud raindrops is between 5 millimeters (mm) and 1/2 mm. Five millimeters is about a quarter of an inch; 1/2 mm, or 0.5 millimeter, is 1/25th of an inch.

Raindrops don’t get much larger than a quarter inch because when they get to falling 20 miles an hour (which is how fast they go at this size) the air resistance starts breaking them up. Low clouds might release larger drops for a short time — we’ve all felt the big splat of first drops or drops right after thunder. But basically, this is as big as they can be because the aerodynamics of their trip through the air won’t let them get larger.

Raindrops also have a lower end of size and don’t get much smaller than a half a millimeter because they don’t fall very well below that size. This is drizzle-size drops, and they only travel 4 miles an hour, maybe a little more. At that rate, falling from a cloud that’s just a mile up, they’d take something like fifteen minutes to fall. That’s a long time, and if the air is the least bit dry, they just won’t make it at all; they’ll evaporate first.

So raindrops have a size. If we divide everything in the universe into piles, according to its size, and if every pile has things that are ten times as tall, wide, and long as the next, (or one tenth as tall, wide, and long) we have about 42 piles all together.
