well lightning will not strike it(because it,s wireless),but if you are on the phone while lightning strikes,the thunder can make your hearing sences bad!!!!!
Because the car will act as a Faraday cage (the electricity will flow round the outside).
you would fall off
Below a tall tree because lightning usually strikes the tallest point. If you are beneath a tall tree, the lightning will be pointed in your direction.
You shouldn't....if something bad were to happen (like a close lightning strike or just really bad rain) the computer will probably turn off itself because of a power surge or something. But you should turn it off. almost 75% of lightning strikes are caused because someone was using a piece of technology in a thunderstorm.
Oh, yes, plenty. Trouble is that lightning is very random, and not reliable as an energy source. On top of that lightning strikes are very short-lived, so while they can do tremendous damage there isn't actually that much energy in them.
Many things, these include cigarettes, charcoal, matches, even a lightning strike. ----------------- I just checked with Smokey the Bear: While lightning strikes can cause forest fires, nine out ten are human caused. Sad, ain't it?
hold a lightning rod up to the sky while lightning is striking
He had a heart attack while in the bathtub.
If the lightning strikes you and the ground, your body would indeed be grounded. The arc of electricity from you to the ground is just as deadly, and your body would be a conductor.
No. While tornadoes are usually accompanied by lightning and can sometimes produce static discharges, electricity has nothing to do with the way they work.
it was a cold frosty night while lightning was in the backgorund
Static charge builds on the clouds. When the charge reaches a high enough level it discharges, sending a large current through the air. The enormous current superheats the air, which expands and contracts (thunder) while it gives off a burst of light (lightning).
Fires can be more dangerous and destructive than lightning storms. Fires make take a while to be put out, while lightning is quick and not constant.
It does come up, & it only take no more than 5 seconds for this to happen.
If the glass is translucent then some is reflected back while some frequencies pass through. Ultraviolet is blocked by glass.
go to this website: http://www.dabontv.com/game382cheatsd.html or if you can't, number 81 is you run your cursor up and down the lighting rod for a while, then the lightning strikes it and you passed that question. good luck! i beat it. (:
Lot's of "strikes" could damage a computer. An airstrike, striking it with a hammer, angry laborers could destroy it while striking, etc... If you are referring to a test question, it probably means a "lightning strike."
cloud to cloud lightning looks as if it is lighting up the whole sky, while cloud to ground lightning looks more like a lightning bolt.
The safest distance from lightning while swimming is in your house. If you hear thunder it is possible taht lightning could strike you. If you are swimming and you hear thunder the best thing to do is to go inside.
We aren't quite sure. Ball lightning is extremely rare and has been documented causing little or lots of damage. Some airplanes have had ball lightning gone through them without damage while some barns have been set on fire in the past. It's not very explained
No. air actually contracts as it gets colder, while air expands as it gets warmer. For example, lightning is so hot, it causes the air to heat up intensly. This rise in temperature causes the air to expand so fast, that it breaks the sound barrier. This causes a sonic boom, and that is the thunder that you hear after lightning strikes.
