Why the rain dropes are spherical in shape? , Physics

This is due to the surface tension of water. Because of the surface tension , the drop tends to have minimum possible surface area, and the shape which is possible with  minimum surface area is  "spherical shape".

Because of surface tension, every thing in the universe wants to achieve stability,they do that by lowereing their energy.which in this case is the surface energy.a sphere offers lowest surface area yet a very large volume
