Physics Question & Answers
Lightning is produced when
|A) Similar charges of electricity rush towards each other and then get repelled||B) clouds strike against impurities in air and the friction burns up these impurities|
|C) strong opposite charges in different clouds break down the resistance offered by the intervening air||D) water vapour produces electricity in the clouds|
When the resistance of the air between breaks down the current flows from the positive cloud to the negative cloud in a flash which we call lightning . The difference of potential involves is very high.
