Question 12

Q12) The weather department has predicted that a thunderstorm is likely to occur on a certain day. Suppose you have to go out on that day. Would you carry an umbrella? Explain.

Solution 12:

An umbrella on a thunderstorm is not a good idea and even advisable because thunderstorms are accompanied by lightning, electric charges from clouds that travel to the metallic rod of the umbrella. Therefore metal is a good conductor of electricity so we may get an electric shock if carrying an umbrella.
