Chapter 7, Problem 5P
Textbook Problem

A lightning stroke lasts 0.05 s and involves a flow of 100 C. What is the current?

Expert Solution
To determine

The electric current.

Explanation of Solution

Given info:

A lighting stroke lasts 0.05 s and involves a flow of 100 C.

Formula used:

The electric current flows through electric charge is

I=qt

Here q is electric charge and t is time in which current flows through charge.

Calculation:

We have, q=100C, t=0
