Question 6

Flash and thunder are produced simultaneously. But thunder is heard a few seconds after the flash is seen, why?


The speed of light is greater than the speed of sound. Sound of thunder takes more time to reach the earth as compared to light. Hence, a flash is seen before we hear a thunder.

The speed of light is (3x108 m/s) and the speed of sound is 330 m/s.
