Because the lightning strike is so hot it melts the sand and cools and turns into glass

There are different kinds of sand which produce different kinds of glass when melted, but sand can certainly produce a green glass when melted by lightning.

Sand can be melted by bringing its temperature to over 4,000 degrees F. With controlled cooling, the molten sand will turn into a glass. Sand can also be glassified by lightning strike, nuclear explosion, or meteor impact.

Yes sand can turn into glass

think of how hot an atomic bomb is and how glass is made with fire & sand and that is how sand turned into glass.

It Can be turned into glass

No. I have actually had a few horses that have been struck by lightning, and all were dead.

Sand is made into glass by adding several chemicals to help with color and strength of the glass. Then it is put under extremely high heat within a kiln. After it is liquefied, it is shaped.

Kinda-sorta. Finely crushed glass will behave pretty much like sand. You won't get the same color though.

With a high concentration of heat and pressure The common glass in window also contains about 75% silica

If it hits just right - yes, it can. It forms a tube called a fulgorite.

Quartz (SiO2), the main mineral in silica sand, has a melting temperature of 4,200 degrees Fahrenheit, or 2,300 degrees C.

Glass is made when sand is heated to such a high temperature that it's as hot as an erupting volcano. Not that I've actually tested this but the glass would most likely turn into liquid glass.

Glass is formed by sand and other products being melted at thousands of degrees to form a goo mixture where it is then shaped and left to cool and turn solid.

The tempest can turn back time by simply sprinkleing gold sand over an hour glass .

they don't turn rocks into sand

The ''Sand Clock'' is really called an Hourglass, and the reason for that is because it takes the sand and hour to reach the other end of the glass. An hourglass is a curved shaped object that has two ends. The hourglass Has sand inside it which Is placed at the bottom of the hourglass, but when you turn the hourglass up side down, the sand slowly runs through a hole to the other end of the glass. When the sand has finally finished flowing it will end up looking like how it was in the first place.

Wood is normally an insulator but will conduct electricity when struck by lightning. The resins and water in the wood turn to steam and explode the tree.

You can't actually avoid lighting but you can avoid getting hot by it by remembering in a thunder storm turn all electrical devices of as this can excite the electricity in the clouds and make you more vunverble to getting struck by lightning

no, you need to put graphite under extreme heat and pressure to make diamond. Another Answer: You are thinking of coal. When subjected to extreme pressure and intense heat, coal will eventually form diamond. Sand, when melted can turn into a glass.

how does sand turn into sandstone

Clay does not turn into glass. Quartz does. There are other kinds too, but not clay.

Silica sand and other minerals are melted. Sometimes color is added. The molten glass is poured into a mold and cools quickly. Immediately after the mold it is put in a 900 degrees Fahrenheit kiln. When the people are done making the glass they turn off the kiln and allow the glass to cool slowly. Panes of glass are made when molten glass is pressed between two rollers, forming a long thin sheet of glass.

No, not at all. Where did you even think of that?

glass is not biodegradeble because its not somthing that can not turn in to fertalizer
