Do You Get Less Wet Walking or Running in the Rain?

It’s one of the more interesting thought experiments to ponder when you’re stuck inside on a dreary day, but Minute Physics finally breaks out the math and science to determine once and for all if walking or running through the rain will keep you the most dry.

The answer ends up being the most obvious solution, you should run. But not just because it will get you out of the downpour the fastest. There are actually a lot of factors that come into play, but the bottom line is the less time you stand in the rain, the less soaked you’ll be. Easy peasy.
