Thunder is an application framework for Flash MX that offers a flexible model for large-scale application development. Classes are included for all key development aspects: asset management, layout management, data management and event management.
The sound which follows a flash of lightning; the report of a discharge of atmospheric electricity.
The discharge of electricity; a thunderbolt.
Any loud noise; as, the thunder of cannon.
An alarming or statrling threat or denunciation.
To produce thunder; to sound, rattle, or roar, as a discharge of atmospheric electricity; -- often used impersonally; as, it thundered continuously.
Fig.: To make a loud noise; esp. a heavy sound, of some continuance.
To utter violent denunciation.
To emit with noise and terror; to utter vehemently; to publish, as a threat or denunciation.
The noise made by an electric discharge (lightning) from charged raindrops in a cloud to another cloud (or other part of the same cloud) or to the earth, or to the air surrounding the charged cloud. Sound travels 1 mile in about 5 seconds, while the lightning flash is seen almost as soon as it occurs, hence the interval of time between the two will give the distance from the observer.
The audible sound waves produced as a lightning discharge heats, and expands, a conducting column of air.
The loud booming sound associated with a lightning strike. A lightning strike rapidly heats a column of air (to conduct the charge) which expands outwards. This expansion results in a compression wave in the air which we hear as thunder. The "rolling thunder" sound is a result of the thunder echoing off surrounding hills and buildings, and also the thunder originating from sections of the lightning stroke at different distances from the observer. A good rule of thumb to tell how far away a storm is to count the seconds between seeing a lightning strike and hearing the thunder from it. Divide this number by three to tell approximately how many kilometres away the storm is.

Sound produced by a lightning discharge.
a deep prolonged loud noise
a booming or crashing noise caused by air expanding along the path of a bolt of lightning
utter words loudly and forcefully; "`Get out of here,' he roared"
to make or produce a loud noise; "The river thundered below"; "The engine roared as the driver pushed the car to full throttle"
The sound caused by air expanding, following a flash of lightning.
The sound caused by a lightning discharge as it heats the air, causing it to rapidly expand.
The sound due to rapidly expanding gases along the channel of a lightning discharge.
The sound produced as a result of the rapid heating and expansion of air during a lightning strike.
The sound wave produced as a lightning stroke heats the air causing it to rapidly expand.
sound waves created by the sudden increase in temperature in the air surrounding lightning
Adds 1 minimum and 17-40 maximum Lightning Damage
the sound that follows a flash of lightning and is caused by sudden expansion of the air in the path of the electrical discharge
is the sound that results from lightning. A lightning bolt produces an intense burst of heat which makes the air around it expand explosively, producing the sound we hear as thunder. Since light travels faster than sound, we see the lightning before we hear the thunder. The difference in time between the two can tell us how far away the clouds producing the lightning and thunder are.
The sound produced by lightning discharges.
The sound caused by a lightning stroke as it heats the air and causes it to rapidly expand.
The sound that is emitted by the rapidly expanding gases along the path of the electrical discharge of lightning.
A sharp or rumbling sound which accompanies lightning. It is emitted by rapidly expanding gases along the channel of a lightning discharge.
The sound emitted by rapidly expanding gases along the channel of a lightning discharge. Over three-quarters of lightning's electrical discharge is used in heating the gases in the atmosphere in and immediately around the visible channel. Temperatures can rise to over 10,000 Â°C in microseconds, resulting in a violent pressure wave, composed of compression and rarefaction. The rumble of thunder is created as one's ear catches other parts of the discharge, the part of the lightning flash nearest registering first, then the parts further away.
The sound caused by the shock wave from a narrow channel of air heated by lightning to around 28,000°C
Sound created when lightning causes the rapid expansion of atmospheric gases along its strike path.
Thunder is, even today, not completely understood by modern science. The word usually describes a sonic shock wave caused by the rapid heating and expansion of the air surrounding and within a bolt of lightning. The bolt changes the air into plasma and it instantly explodes, causing the sound known as a thunder clap.
