Can thunder shake a house?

Can thunder shake a house?

During the thunder there is a very loud noise produced,its dominant frequency is in the 100 Hz range. Same thing is with thunder. The sound intensity of thunder is about 120 dB in close proximity to the ground stroke. Thus a house shakes during thunder.

Why does thunder make sound?

Thunder is caused by lightning. When a lightning bolt travels from the cloud to the ground it actually opens up a little hole in the air, called a channel. Once then light is gone the air collapses back in and creates a sound wave that we hear as thunder.

How do you explain lightning and thunder to a child?

Tell your child thunder is the sound made by lightning. This is why you hear thunder and see lightning together during a thunderstorm. If you are explaining thunder during a storm, have your child look up at the thunderclouds. If not, tell your child that thunderclouds are tall, dark and puffy clouds.

How many KW is a lightning bolt?

Each lightning strike has on average only five billion joules, that is equivalent to only around 1,400kWh of energy if we assume zero loss in transfer and storage.

What is red lightning?

Sprites, also known as red lightning, are electrical discharges that appear as bursts of red light above clouds during thunderstorms. The researchers hope to learn more about the physical and chemical processes that give rise to sprites and other forms of upper atmospheric lightning.

How strong is 1million volts?

1 million volts can kill even with a fairly low amperage but if the amperage is low enough 1 million volts will not even hurt.

Why do amps kill you?

In fact, its voltage will be high enough to overcome your skin’s resistance. It can pass through your skin into your blood vessels. If the level of amps is high enough, it can do some serious damage to your body tissues. It could even kill you!

Can 50000 volts kill you?

50,000 volts isn’t close to being lethal. At best it may just burn the hell out of them. The Important aspect of any taser or stun gun is the amount of current it delivers(Amps, mAh) combined with a high frequency pulsing effect.

How much voltage can a human survive?

The human body has an inherent high resistance to electric current, which means without sufficient voltage a dangerous amount of current cannot flow through the body and cause injury or death. As a rough rule of thumb, more than fifty volts is sufficient to drive a potentially lethal current through the body.

Can 12V AC kill you?

12V*500mA can produce 6w of power enough to kill if it passed trhough your heart, but your body has enough resistance to avoid that happens with little volt. The 500 ma is way more than enough to kill you but 12 volts will not push very much current through your body, not even enough to feel it! So the answer is no.

Can 30mA kill you?

DC current is about 2-4 times less dangerous than AC current because the AC current will cause faster ventricular fibrillation which is often the cause of death from electric shock. Applying 9V from your hand to hand directly in your bloodstream would then give 30mA DC which is highly unlikely to kill you.

Can 220 volts kill you?

So yes, 220 Volts is plenty to kill you if the source can supply sufficient current, and if that killed you you would have been “electrocuted”. A one ampere of current is more than enough to burn your flesh. High voltage of 1000 volts cannot kill a person if the current is very feeble.
