As a crude model for lightning, consider the ground to be one plate of a parallel-plate capacitor and the cloud to be the other plate. The altitude of the cloud is 600m and its area is 6.5 km2. How much charge can the cloud hold before the dielectric strength of air is exceeded and the lightning results?
