"Our project tested how far an electric current could travel through water. We chose to do this project because we were curious how far the current from a lightning bolt could travel in water. We found that is should take 2.88 x 10^6 L to completely neutralize a 9 volt battery. This project could help save lives by calculating the distance that the electricity from a fallen powerline could travel in water. It also taught us how important it is to be safe with electricity. "
