1.    The main part of lightning is the electrons that form to create the lightning bolt. A lightning bolt forms from negative and positive electrons that form in the cloud. from the these in the cloud when the electrons build up to much it some of the electron fall down then that creates the bolt that you see in the sky and this bolt is heat cause of the heat from the electrons in the cloud.

2.    Using lightning as energy could be possible because we have ways to make lighting and to store it but I could cost lots of money and may not be good in all third world countries also could lead to injury or the system could overt overload if too much power comes in.

3.    The ethical implications is on using lightning as an energy sources is a good source because it is natural so less effects on the environment unlike man made energy source, on the other hand using something natural instead on man made means less control over it

4.    Using lightning as power can may cause a small effect on the world in the long run but would be somewhat safe to use. Using lightning as energy I think could work.


We did an equal amount of work in this project. The model showed how lightning is created and how it works. And the write up showed what lightning can do to us. I think the model could have been a little better if I worked on it more, and the write up had a couple mistakes, but it was also okay. I think we should have done a bit more editing on the write up so it would have been better, but it did have a lot of information.
