Lightning in general
Every body knows about what lightning is because everyone knows it comes in storms and can kill people and causes blackouts or turns electricity back on in a house. It can cause scare the live out of people with it’s partner of thunder. But something I bet you don’t know is what’s in lightning… Well it’s electricity but what’s in electricity?
Well, to just make it easier I give you this example there are atoms in every thing and electrons go around them and when it’s in the case of electricity the electrons travel around super super fast and they get super charged or over charged, which creates electricity.
Did You Know? Lightning is a giant electrical spark.
What should I do in a lightning storm?
Lightning or Thunder Storms are dangerous, really dangerous. If you get shocked it’s very dangerous but even though you should be able to live since most people survive from shocks don’t try it. If your teacher is shocked by lightning he would fly back because of the electrical force that the lightning put on him. If you’re driving in a car while there’s a lightning storm you’re safer than being outside a car because the lightning reflects off metal but don’t be close to a car! If someone is struck and there are puddles near him move out of the way because the electricity could passthrough the puddles and could shock you. If you ask me in a storm you should just stay at home.
Did you know? Benjamin Franklin did his famous kite and key experiment because
1. The kite would catch it and it would catch onto the key because it was metal.
2. To prove his theory on electricity.
