lightning strikes, Berlingo
#1
So I was driving a chum of mine a while ago through a thunderstorm and he said a car is the safest place to be in a storm as the metal cage protects anyone inside.

ok, I sad, but the modutop roof on this one is plastic. He went a bit quiet.

I think it's called a Faraday cage?I would have thought the roof frame would be enough?

Is it not the tyre's that stop the lightening  going to earth and not using you and the car as a conductor and the smell of burnt skin get that out of your carpet's.  Sad

It's the same principal as an aeroplane. They get hit about once a year. The current flows around the outside as metal conducts best.

rubber tyres are black cos they put carbon in the mix, carbon is a god conductor of electricity ,  lightening will go straight through the tyres to ground,  wet tyres even better,    Smile

btw they put carbon in to stop uv light penetrating into the rubber and destroying it.
