Solving for distance to lightning.
Note, the speed of sound (s) is approximately 1100 to 1200 feet per second.
speed of sound in air (s)
elapsed time between flash and thunder (t)
lightning distance (d)
= NOT CALCULATED
|Solve for the lightning strike distance.|
|Solve for the speed of sound.|
|Solve for the time elapsed between seeing/observing the flash and hearing thunder.|
