Problem 70

70. In lightning storms, the potential difference between the F.arth and the bottom of the thunderclouds can be as high as 35.000.000 V. The bottoms of the thunderclouds are typically 1500 m above the Earth, and can have an area of 110 km2. Modeling the Earth-cloud system as a huge capacitor, calculate (tf) the capacitance of the Earth-cloud system, (/?) the charge stored in the capacitor." and (c) the energy stored in the "capacitor.
