Even as a raindrop is falling, it will often collide with other raindrops and increase in size. Once the size of a raindrop gets too large, it will eventually break apart in the atmosphere back into smaller drops. This time, the surface tension loses and the large raindrop ceases to exist.
So next time it rains, you can picture millions of tiny hamburger buns falling from the sky (if you weren’t already ).
