[IDEA] Would this work? Answered
this is a theoretical question, as i have neither the time nor the money to do it.
Assuming that your electromagnet would not melt with the power of the lightning and is made of suitable electromagnet material (copper wire and soft iron?).
What would happen if somebody connected a large electromagnet to a lightning rod and to the ground? I do not know much about this field of physics, so please explain your answers!
thanks in advance,
