    Number of electrons transferred in the lightning bolt, n = 1.498 * 10²⁰ electrons

    Explanation:

    Total charge transferred by lightning bolt, Q = number of electrons transferred by the lightning bolt, n * charge on one electron, q

    Q = 24C

    n = ?

    q = 1.60218 * 10⁻¹⁹C

    n = Q/q = 24 / (1.60218 * 10⁻¹⁹) = 1.498 * 10²⁰ electrons
