In a model for a thunderstorm, we might view the Earth’s surface and the
lower face of the storm cloud as parallel plates of a capacitor, with
capacitance C = 1.2 μF. The model storm is driven by an emf ε = 2.4 MV
(to account for the energy input from the Sun, and the convection in the
clouds). The system also has some resistance R = 150 MΩ (associated
with moving charges around the system).
(a)
If the surface area of the storm cloud’s lower face is 25 km2 = 2.5 × 107 m2, what is the distance d between the
Earth and the clouds, assuming the system acts like a perfect parallel plate capacitor? d = __________________
(b)
What is the maximum charge Q that can be exchanged between the Earth and clouds in this model?
Q = ___________________
(c)
Find the time T required to build up a voltage ΔVC = 1.2 MV across the capacitor. T = ____________________
(d)
If at some point some amount of charge, q = 0.72 C is able to cut a path between the Earth and cloud (no one
knows exactly how this process works), then lightning strikes. If the lightning bolt is approximated as a uniform
column of charge of length L = 300 m and radius r = 76 mm, flowing at a steady rate for a duration of 30 μs, find
the current density J in the lightning bolt and the total current I.
J = ____________________, I = ____________________
