The subject is bolt.Of lightning is a prepositional phrase that supplements the subject, can melt is the verb, and sand is the direct object.
the lightning heats up the sand causing the silica in the sand to melt causing natural glassthese are called "fulgurites". and yes, this is awesome.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fulgurite____________What happens in the above answer occurs when HEAT strikes sand, not lightning (although lightning has extreme heat, this is not the correct answer). Sand is considered "ground" if you are touching sand during a thunderstorm you are grounded.(: Hey!!
No, lightning is not attracted to sand blasting dust.
Sand in and of itself does nothing to melt ice. Sand is applied to icy roads not to melt the ice but to provide better traction.
Sand that has been melted by lightning is called fulgurite.
you melt sand
Melt it. Sand is highly variable in its composition but most will melt between 500 and 1000C, with the individual grains fusing together into glass. Fulgurites are a type of natural glass formed by lightning strikes on sand. Obsidian is another natural glass produced by volcanoes.
It would create glass considering the heat of the lightning and that sand turns to glass when hot enough.
You get glass
No. Sand consists of solid particles. You can melt it, but at that point it is no longer sand.

You can melt any solid but the sand will melt at different temperatures depending on whats in it. Melting sand is the basic starting point for creating glass. Gas burners are used to get it over 1000 degrees.
Salt will melt ice faster.
If lightning strikes sand, glass is formed.
Yes, if lightning strikes sand (as on a beach), the intense heat of the lightning strike can fuse the sand into glass.
Because the lightning strike is so hot it melts the sand and cools and turns into glass

salt, pepper, sugar, and sand makes ice melt faster but sand salt sugar and pepper melts ice faster than sand
1500 degrees Celsius
It does not.
it turns into sand
