In a typical lightning strike, 2.5 C flows from cloud to ground in 0.20 ms.
What is the current during the strike?
To quote one of our very good math and science tutors: “You will find here at Jiskha that long series of questions, posted with no evidence of effort or thought by the person posting, will not be answered. We will gladly respond to your future questions in which your thoughts are included.”
Hint: In case you have not read the definition of current, it is charge per unit time, which means the amount of transferred charge (in Coulombs) divided by how long it takes (in seconds). The unit of current is called an Ampere.
