Problem 2E

Lightning occurs when there is a flow of electric charge (principally electrons) between the ground and a thundercloud. The maximum rate of charge flow in a lightning bolt is about 20,000 C/s; this lasts for 100 µs or less. How much charge flows between the ground and the cloud in this time? How many electrons flow during this time?
