Transcript: The Mindboggling Mystery of Lightning by 5th Grade geniuses: Luke, Andrew, and Graeme. What destructive effects does lightning have? When they colide lightning is formed Lightning Ball lightning The electrons in the cloud are attracted to the protons on the ground. A scientific presentation Ball Lightning Lightning is caused when positive water molecules collide with electrons. Lightning causes fires and can kill people. For lightning to occur you need thunderheads, increasing winds and low pressure. Ball lightning Ball lightning is rarely known to chase people. The protons are made when electrons are stripped of oxygen molecules. So Lightning is: Lightning is an electrical discharge of high voltage. Lighting is basically electricity and electricity is made by moving electrons. Fetzer,Scott. World Book L Volume 12. Chicago: World Book inc, 2000 Gardner, Guy.

Transcript: Lightning 1 Lightning is a giant spark of electricity in the atmosphere between clouds, the air, or the ground. In the early stages of development, air acts as an insulator between the positive and negative charges in the cloud and between the cloud and the ground. What Lightning is 2 You need cold air and warm air. When they meet, the warm air goes up. It makes thunderstorm clouds. The cold air has ice crystals and the warm air has water droplets. During the storm, the droplets and crystals bump together and move apart in the air. This rubbing makes static electrical charges in the clouds. The energy goes through the air. It goes to a place that has the opposite charge. This lightning bolt of energy that is let out is called a leader stroke. It can go from the cloud to the ground.

When he got struck Shenandoah National Park Today 6 There wasn't really any way to inform him, he just had to know when to get to shelter and get out of the area. Was there any way to inform sullivan? 7 Web 10 April 2018 Rob St. George. "The Human Lightning Conductor."
