Abstract

The change in electric potential as a result of lightning in a sphere of radius 1 is evaluated. Eigenfunctions obtained by utilizing spherical Bessel functions are used to evaluate the new potential. The change in the electric potential is a constant along the lightning channel, and it is the same as the pre-flash potential outside the channel. The governing equation for the electric potential is obtained from Maxwell’s equations.
