# What is the angle at which water is splashed when a vehicle tyre rides in water on the road?

I would like to know the following:

1. What is the angle at which water gets splashed when I ride my vehicle through a water on the road?

2. How does angle of water varies with speed?

3. What is the relation between the distance the water goes with the speed of the vehicle?

Thanks!

You can get a rough estimate relatively easily, but do you want a precise answer? That would be a major project. – Ron Maimon Sep 11 '12 at 4:02
I am fine in getting the approach in calculating the angle..if that is possible. Rough estimate based on logic is also fine. – meetpd Sep 11 '12 at 4:18
I doubt there is any non-numerical, non-experimental calculation of the angle that could be written in words and equations. – Luboš Motl Sep 11 '12 at 9:00
@RonMaimon how would you do the estimation? – Yrogirg Sep 11 '12 at 9:31
You should specify situation more, there is also water going backwards from the car tire (it can be also stones) - in this case that is a standart homework problem. People are trying to answer here more difficult situation when the water is splashed PERPENDICULAR to the direction in which car moves. – Asphir Dom Sep 11 '12 at 10:20
