Thunderstorms and lightning
Evolution and electrification of thunderstorms. The development of a thunderstorm begins when warm, moist air rises upwards and the water vapor the air contains condenses and forms a cumulus cloud. A few extra ideas to investigate are squall lines, lightning strikes, and thunderstorm occurrence over the world’s oceans.
I can figure it out! there are 3 things to form a thunderstorm:
A source of moisture. An unstable atmosphere. Mechanism to trigger storm.
This begs the question “How do thunderstorms form and what are their effects?”
You see, answer: Thunderstorms form as warm, moist air rises quickly and cools, causing condensation and precipitation. Winds blow ice particles around inside the clouds, which causes the buildup of static electricity.
What causes lightning and Thunder?
Striking facts about Lightning: The average temperature of lightning is around 20,000 degrees. A single bolt of lightning is five times hotter than the surface of the sun. There exists two types of lightning, negative and positive strikes and positive strikes are five times more powerful than negative strikes. A flash of lightning is brighter than 10,000,000 100-watt light bulbs., and more items.
Some believe that nebraska started what seemed to be a new tradition this season between the third and fourth quarter when music, a red glow and columns of fire greeted the final 15 minutes of football. The most popular anthem played in that span between quarters? None other than AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck. “.
Thunder can be heard up to 25 miles away from the lightning discharge, but the frequency of the sound changes with distance from the lightning channels that produce it, because higher frequencies are more quickly absorbed by the air.
Another thing we asked ourselves was, is it possible to have lightning without thunder?
No, it is not possible to have lightning without thunder, according to NOAA. Thunder is a direct result of lightning. If you see lightning but don’t hear thunder, it is because the thunder is too far away . Sometimes, people refer to this as heat lightning because it most often occurs in the summer, but it is no different from regular lighting.
What are three conditions needed for thunderstorms to form?
, and cold air. Below freezing temperatures in the clouds and near the ground are necessary to make snow and/or ice. Something to raise the moist air to form the clouds and cause precipitation. To form clouds and precipitation. Air blowing across a body of water, such as a large lake or the ocean, is an excellent source of moisture.
You should be wondering “What are all the requirements for a thunderstorm to form?”
All thunderstorms require three main ingredients: Moisture. Typical sources of moisture are large bodies of water such as the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, as well as the Gulf of Mexico.
