tipically we have: current I = 2*10^5 amperes for t= 1.5 seconds, so the electricity carried by a ligthning is: Q=2*10^5* 1.5 = 4 *10 ^5 Coulombs

ok! so would our solution be choice B? :/

  • Michele_Laino
yes! I think so!

oh sorry!! in the answer choices, i forgot to put the negative signs! here are the correct answer choices: A. 1. 6 × 10^-19 C B. 5.0 × 10^-6 C C. 5.0 × 10^0 C D. 6.24 × 10^18 C would this still be choice B? @Michele_Laino :)

option D is a very large quantity of electricity

ohhh okay! which would it be then? :/ i am not sure :P
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
we can conjecture a series of discharges, so I think option D

please wait

ok!
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
if we conjecture a current I = 2*10^3 amperes, and a time interval t= 5*10^(-3) seconds, then Q=2*10^3*5*10^-3=10 coulombs

  • anonymous
so that would mean choice C? :/

  • Michele_Laino
all data are from Wikipedia

  • anonymous
ah okie :P wikipedia has everything! haha :P
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
yes! I think option C

  • anonymous
okie yay!! again, sorry about this error!! thank you!!
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
option D is too high value
anonymous
  • anonymous
ahh yes:) okie!! :) back to the other one i posted:P haha sorry again!! :P
