IS ‘LIGHTENING’ EQUAL TO ELECTRICITY? IF IT FALLS ON THE COOKING-GAS CYLINDERS, WILL IT FIRE?
The cooking gas will not fire, if there is no oxygen. So, there is no chance for the cooking gas, as long as the cooking gas is inside the gas cylinder.
If lightning falls on the gas cylinder, electricity spreads throughout the metallic gas cylinder. As the bottom of the cylinder is touching the earth, it will earth easily. As the cylinder made out of thick metal- plate, more heat will not come, even though current circulation pass over it.
It may fire, if lightening attacks at the time of release of the cooking gas, when the cylinder breaks, due to any reason. But chances are remote for that. Lightening first falls only on high posts and buildings. It is very rare for the lightening falling on the gas cylinder which is inside the house.
