LBOKUM Where Dues Lightning Got Its Electricity? Win the Britannica Junior 15- volume encyclopedia for school and home. Send your questions name, age, address to "Tell Me Why!" care of this paper. In case of duplicate questions the author will decide the winner. Today's winner is: Valeria Villegas, Austin, Texas Have you ever noticed a kind o! 'crackling" when your hair it. brushed or combed? Or when you rub a cat's fur, you sometimes hear these crackles. The crackles are sparks of static electricity, Static electricity is created by friction.or the rubbing together ol materials. The materials rubbec together become electrically charged — either positively or negatively. A positive charge has a great attraction for a negative one. As the charge becomes greater, this attraction becomes stronger. Finally a '.point is reached when whatever resistance holds the charges apart (air, glass etc.) is overcome or broken down, and a discharge or spark takes place to relieve the strain and make the two bodies electrically equal. This is just what happens in the ease of lightning. A storm cloud contains countless tiny particles or drops of moisture. As the cloud moves, these particles rub against each other and are broken apart. As this' happens, each particle becomes electrically charged. The lower part of the cloud takes on a negative charge. The earth wd higher clouds take on a positive charge. When the elec- :rical pressure between the two becomes great enough to break down the insulation of the air between them a lightning flash occurs. So the electricity In light ning is static electricity, and this Is how It's crated. \ id you ever wonder why light' ning often stops when rain begins to fall? That's because the moist air forms a fairly good conduo- or. So the charge of electricity 'ram the cloud sometimes tray* els through it quietly and unseen, Thunder is only a noise mad? by the violent collision of currents of air as they expand and con tract during and after a di charge. Light from a lightnini flash is seen the moment it hap pens. But since sound travels a about 1,120 feet per second (at 6 degrees Fahrenheit), it may taki five seconds for the sound of thi thunder to reach you if the light ning discharge is a mile away.
