Q13. Lightning and thunder take place in the sky at the same time and at the same distance from us. Lightning is seen earlier and thunder is heard later. Can you explain why?

Answers (1)


The speed of light is much faster than the speed of sound, due to this the light emitted by lightning reaches our eyes before the sound of thunder reaches our ears and we see lightning before we hear thunder.
