How does a car protect you from lightning?
Because the car is grounded, the lightning finds a path through the car to the ground, rather than through you.
You do not want to be touching the ground and car at the same time lightning strikes the car, then the lightning will go through you to the ground.
yes, they attract myself, when myself is god and i will always protect you
No because lead is metal and you don't want to be by metal during a lightning storm. (the safest thing to do is to be in a car or on something made of rubber)
No lightning cant protect it only destroys.
Yes, because as it attracts lightning due to being a conductor, it safes you for the very same reason. The armor will act as a Faraday cage just like a car is safe from lightning for the very same reason.
stay in a building or a car and stay away from metal objects because metal is a good conducters of electricity
In a car, the metal body will protect you sending the lightning around the body of the car.Never touch the body of the car if this is acuring.Keep your hands together in your lap and feet firmly on the ground.You might feel a tingle in your feet but other than that you are safe. Indoors or in a car. just not outside, be under something
that you are not supposed to hide under a tree. Or if you can - hide in a car cause the rubber tires will protect you!.
Protect the high buildings, structures from lightning using lightning spike, lightning mast , earth wire.
stay inside away from the lightning.
Lightning always takes the path of least resistance. A tree is tall and easily conducts electricity. A car will protect you because the lightning will travel through the car (less resistance) easier than a human body. the car sits on rubber tires wich act as an insulator isolating the car from the groun if you were to step out of the car as lightning struck you would be electrocuted.

Get inside or get into or under something that will protect you, such as under a pavilion or even in a car. Do not stand under a tree, though, as hail is usually accompanied by lightning.
Benjamin Frankiln. To protect buildings from lightning
Yes, install a lightning rod.
Lightning Car Company was created in 2007.
they help by rerouting the lightning around the barn and into the ground, i believe.
No, that is a myth. What actually protects you is the car itself. Sitting inside a car you are basically sitting in a Faraday cage. The lightning travels around the metal body of the car and then jumps to ground. As long as you are not touching the metal body of the car you are safe.
a best defence against lightning is stay at your home. Or if your home is far during lightning, you can stay in a car because metal reflects lightning. Anyway, while you are in a car during lightning, DO NOT TOUCH ANY METAL IN THE CAR!
After a lightning strike, wait in your car until the storm is over. Then, get out of the car if the conditions are safe.
Benjamin Franklin Benjamin Franklin
lightning can strike a car tire dont listen to haters who think cars cant get struck by lightning.
A surge protector.
That would be the Lightning Rod. It even has Lightning in the name.
Car because if a lightning hits the car the energy goes around the car but the tree can't absorb the energy
Lightning McQueen is a race car that races for a piston cup. It is not a real car and is not designed from a real car. The only car where you see some design influences present on McQueen is the Chevy Corvette. But Lightning is not a Corvette. He is no one car at all.
if you are in a car or something else stay in your car or anything else . if you are at home get a flashlight or candle or anything that can help you see in the dark because sometimes electricity can power down sometimes and always have your phone just in case lightning strikes your house can sometimes get on fire . make sure you stay away from windows and don't go outside
No. Fuses are overcurrent protection devices. Lightning surges are overvoltages.
it absorbs the electricity and puts it into the ground
Yes it is safer un a car than outside because the metal of the car attracts lightning but safely routes it to the ground but this is not do to your rubber tires as proved by NASA. Maddog1198
" Lightning flashes bright and then it fades away. it can't protect "
Usually lightning wont damage your car because its grounded through the tires.
Which one of ben Franklin's inventions helped protect people from buildings and ships from lightning?
The lightning conductor attracted the lightning and led it safely down to the ground.
Yes,the insluating effects of rubber are not high enough to protect you from lightning
Disappointing as it may be, nothing much. There's too much metal in the car. When the lightning strikes, the charge is evenly displaced across the car, preventing any damage that may have occurred. You can google images of cars being struck by lightning. If you'll notice, the interior of the car is completely unblemished from the lightning.
Not really. Someone standing in a field with a metal rod will still get struck by lightning even if they are wearing rubber soles.
It was never made as a Hot Wheels car. It was a Johnny Lightning car. Two different company's.
by grounding electrical energy
Color it red!
Lightning can have a devastating effect on automobile electrical systems. It can easily burn out a car alarm during a storm.
A lightning rod provides a path for the electricity to safely discharge into the ground with little resistance.
Staying in a car is the safest place to be during a lightning storm.
It means you have an Opel car. That is correct partially, but it actually means the car goes like lightning or lightning fast.
By using a metal rod or conductor mounted on top of a building and electrically connected to the ground through a wire, to protect the building in the event of lightning. If lightning strikes the building it will preferentially strike the rod, and be conducted harmlessly to ground through the wire, instead of passing through the building,
you can sdtay in safe homes
When it comes to lightning anything is possible, but it is highly unlikely. Lightning can for sure strike a car but as long as you are not touching any metal part of the car you are safe. Lighting will take the shortest path to ground and that is always metal not glass. I have never heard of lightning even breaking a sunroof. But with mother nature and the power of a lightning bolt anything is… Read More
Lightning rods, metal spikes placed on roofs attached to a grounding wire.
The metal car frame conducts and roots the lightning in to the ground. Of course, if you're in the car and you are touching the metal on the doors, you will be electrocuted
yes airbags protect you in a car crash
A surge protector Answer 2: Surge protectors provide some protection, but the only surefire way to protect an electronic device during lightning storms is to unplug the device.
