let’s try enriching more!LET’S ANSWER SOME OF ACTIVITIES APPLIED!Lightning VarietiesLightning is one of nature’s mostspectacular phenomena. It is also one of themost common. At any given moment, about2000 thunderstorms take place around theworld. In the United States, lightning strikeshit millions of points every year.The most familiar lightning bolts are cloud-to-ground lightning. The bottom of the cloud is negatively charged, while the ground is positively charged. Static energy moves from the bottom of the cloud to the ground in sections called step-leaders. That’s why the bolts appear jagged. As a step-leader gets close to the ground, a positively charged bolt called a leader flashes up from the ground to meet it. This is ground-to-cloud lightning.The most common lightning doesn’t hit the ground. Lightning that goes between sectionsof a cloud is called intracloud lightning. It redistributes energy between positive and negative areas in the same cloud. Usually, intracloud lightning bolts are not visible. Instead it looks like a broad flash in the sky and is often called sheet lightning.
Lightning between oppositely chargedareas of different clouds is called cloud-to-cloud lightning. Lightning can also movefrom a cloud to a charged air pocket. Thislightning is called cloud-to-air lightning.Answer the following questions, usingcomplete sentences.1.What are the common features of all of these forms of lightning?2.Why are we usually unaware of ground-to-cloud lightning?Answers:1.doesn’t hit the groundIt redistributes energy between positive and negativenot visible.

As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
