Thunder and Lightning – Sound and light variations

Thunder and Lightning – Sound and light variations

We all seeing and hearing lighting and thunder at same time. Both created at the same time but we will see the light first and then we will hear about thunder. Here we have a doubt… which one is created first? If the both are created at the same time then Why we see the lightning first? Or Why we hear the thunder second?

Speed of sound and light variations – Thunder and Lightning

The reason behind this natural event is the variation between the speed of sound and light.

The speed of light is 3 x 108 m/s

The speed of Sound (Thunder) is 330 m/s

Now you can easily explain these things.  Both are created at the same timings but due to the high speed of light it reached us first and then the sound (Thunder) reaching us. Just like that you can see the many natural things in science point of view.
