energy to create glass from sand

  • Lightning bolt energy can be measured thousands of years later

    Aug 4, 2016 Dr. Matthew Pasek/University of South Florida "Fulgurite" is the technical term for the hollow rods of glass that lightning can create when it strikes sand. They're surprisingly common across the planet, lightning strikes about 45 times per second and creates about 10 fulgurites from those strikes.

    For example, the glass in your windows was not formed by lightning. The lightning has to strike rock or sand to make glass, and the resulting glass is called fulgurite. The reason lightning can make glass is because lightning has a LOT of energy. Because the lightning has so much energy, it can quickly melt the rock or sand

    Glass making is an ancient craft. Mother Nature can make glass when lightning strikes a sandy beach. Sand is the compound silicon dioxide, and at temperatures of around 1,760 degrees Celsius (3,200 degrees Fahrenheit), it melts to create a form of glass called quartz. Pure silicon melts at 1,414 degrees Celsius (2,577
