Why is the lightning conductor strip very thick?
so it can conduct high current without being damaged.
yes, because water is a very good conductor of lightning
Conductor... water is a VERY good conductor of electricity... hence why you shouldn't swim in a lightning storm.
A tornado can get wide, very wide. A bolt of lightning is only one half inch thick.
Yes. Lightning is very attracted to water; it is an excellent conductor of electricity. a surfer in Cornwall was struck while surfing
No , Air is a Very Poor Conductor of electricity . Air is only conductive when it is raining or there is a high voltage passing through it , that is Lightning
Salty water is a very good electrical conductor, so when lightning hits the ocean, it rapidly dissipates in all directions.
Lightning is not attracted to wood, as wood is a poor conductor in electricity. Lightning hits trees because it is a tall object, and lightning is attracted to tall objects. Lightning is also attracted to metal, but the metal has to be very high up, like a lightning rod.
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.
Yes water is a very good conductor of electricity, that is why you are not supposed to take a shower in a lightning storm.
Lightening is attracted to substances that conduct electricity, Rubber is a VERY poor conductor of electricity.
The aircraft has a special coating that somehow repels lightning so the aircraft isn't affected. The coating is usually aluminum which is a very good conductor of electricity. I hope this info has been of help to everyone.
The resistivity of copper is very low and as the strip is so thick then resistance would be almost zero.
You need a ground (which should be insulated because if you ever get energy on that wire it's going to be very high voltage) on any radio system with an outside antenna because of lightning - lightning likes to find the biggest conductor it can to go to, and your antenna is probably the biggest conductor on your block...especially if you like working the 40-meter, 80-meter and 160-meter bands. If your antenna gets struck by… Read More
It travels very well underwater as you know. Water is a very good conductor of electricity. That's why you should never bath and swim in waters while there's a thunderstorm going on in your area
No, it is a very poor conductor.
It is a very good conductor.
Silver, like gold, is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. Silver may also be hammered into a very thin strip, much like tinfoil.
iron is quite a very good conductor of heat but it is a very poor electrical conductor
it is a conductor, but rather a very weak one. VERY WEAK
Lightning is a series of colors and is normally seen as a yellow, white or transparent. Lightning also depends on the temperature, which, as we know, is very, very, very hot.
In addition to providing a conducting path to ground in case a lightning strike occurs, lightning rods also reduce the number of large lightning strikes by reducing the static charge build-up in the atmosphere around the building. The pointed end of the rod creates an attraction point for the excess charge and siphons it to ground, reducing the charge difference between the cloud and the building. If you get a chance to deal with a… Read More
yes it is but a very poor conductor
It usually does that because it's the highest thing around. .....When there is a point on a conductor charge can gather more there, causing the air around the conductor/lighting rod, to ionize....Ionized air allowed the flow of charge very easily so it will flow through the air to the rod and into the ground. A simple explaination is that it will strike the highest thing because it is the easiest and shortest path to the… Read More
Carefully remove the 'lead' from a wooden pencil that has been sharpened to a very fine point. You will use this piece of 'lead' as the 'lightning rod' in your working model of a lightning-protection system. -- You need a source of very high voltage. This is nothing to play around with, so I will give no instructions here. You'll have to look elsewhere for advice. And when you get it, hold onto the… Read More
No, brick is a very poor conductor.
lemon juice with salt will act as a very good conductor also vinegar is a conductor but not a very good one
Very not thick ...
Lightning is stream of electron travel through medium. The most conductive path is the path lightning travel. Water is not a good electrical conductor but it is better conductor in compare to air. So, introducing water in the path and the thunder is likely travel to water. It is to note that most lightning hazard distribute in E-mail is hoax for increase of risk is infinitesimally too small to concern. For example like car key… Read More
No substance is an absolute non-conductor of heat, but sugar is a very poor conductor.
It is a good conductor of heat.
Most airplanes can survive lightning strikes due to their thick strong skin and high altitudes. Airplanes are very safe to fly and they get rid the waste of human lives because they are extremely well maintained and cannot break into pieces that easily. Airplanes only take 4 to 7% damage of lightning strikes and they can also handle as much turbulence than you think. Airplanes are over-built with several layers of thick and strong skin… Read More
well its a conductor but a very poor one...
yes;very good conductor of electricity.
yes, gold is a very good conductor
Yes, gold is a very good conductor
Materials which usually prevent charges from flowing through a circuit. They can be forced to conduct electricity if the charges have enough energy, i.e. if the voltage is high enough. This is evident during a lightning storm when the air, normally a very good insulator, is turned into a conductor to allow the lightning bolt to travel through the air.
It is used as a thermal conductor, and an electrical conductor Yes. Because of the metallic bonds in copper, it is a very good conductor. yes it is
This is because a cathedral consist of a high up point. This point is very prone to being struck by lightening since it is usually one of the highest points around its location, and lightening strikes the thing that is closest to it. Having a safety lightening conductor is safer for the cathedral to prevent fires.
Lightning is not a weapon but it is very dangerous. The odds of being struck by lightning is 1 in 3000.
Can Be Struck By Lightning Hopefully, nothing. Swimming in lightning with all the water that's around you is a very, very bad decision. You could be struck by lightning and possibly killed. It's always good to get out of the water before the lightning reaches your area.
Copper is a very good conductor of heat.
Yes, carbon is a very good conductor of electricity.
Yes, it is a very good thermal conductor.
No. Methane is a very poor conductor of electricity.
A nail is a very poor but srong so middle conductor
It's more of a conductor, but not a very good one.
A very good conductor.
