Science Puzzles

Just for Fun, some science questions. I don’t have the answers, but the questions are amusing to think about.

  1. Why is Lightning jagged and zig-zaggy? Why doesn’t it travel in straight lines?
  2. A storm happens. Lightning strikes a Lake. Let’s say the lake is 1 mile, across. One foot below the surface of the water, is a Trout fish. It dies from the Lightning Zap. Question: But how deep in the lake would it need to be, to be unfazed?
  3. . A rainbow is colored, curved and does not appear to be moving. Yet, the Northern Lights are also colored, they wave and swirl and don’t stay still. Why the difference?
  4. What is “Avagadro’s Number”?
  5.  What is “Plank’s Constant”?
  6. The upper windshields on many cars are blue glass, but why blue? Why not red or orange? Some sunglasses have an Orange-ish/brown tint. Why not car windshields?
  7. Astronomy. The Big Bang. It’s a theory. Did you know that the Big Bang Theory didn’t come along until 1927? What did most everyone believe in 1925?

OK, that’s enough nerdiness for one day. (smile). I post about several different topics at:   –Relationships, Music, Books, TV & more.  🙂
