WHY ARE CHARGES PRESENT ON CLOUDS?

Asked by rashmi nivaragi | 14th Apr, 2013, 07:20: PM

Expert Answer:

Water from the sea and other sources evaporates and drifts upward due to the low density of the vapor, and forms clouds. During the upward journey, they acquire electric charge due to friction. These charges are accumulated in such a manner that the positive charges are accumulated on top of the cloud and negative charges are accumulated on the bottom.
