How many hydrogen molecules in one gallon of water?
126600000000000000000000000 molecules! That’s in the ‘septillions’!*
*After sextillion comes sextillion-one; then sextillion-two, etc… After sextillion comes septillion (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) Big number, eh? We’re talking 24 zeros!
Sextillion is a number equal to a 1 followed by 21 zeros.
1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 is an example of a sextillion.
A lightning storm and thunderstorm are one and the same. Lightning creates thunder. Thunder is the sound created by lightning. The Speed of light is measured at 299,792,458 meters per second. The Speed of sound is measured at 343.2 meters per second.
Light travels much faster and further than sound. Example: During a fireworks display, if someone has a distant ‘line of sight’ they can SEE the fireworks display but not hear it. If you were to travel closer, at some point you can hear it, but sometime after you see it, as sound travels significantly slower than light.
If you hear thunder, it means lightning is in close proximity. If you see lightning and don’t hear thunder, it simply means you are too far away to hear it. If you hear thunder and don’t see lightning, it simply means the lightning is hidden from your sight by its location in the storm clouds. Light travels much faster and further than sound.
