How to answer is easier, since the principle of the lightning conductor is very simple. in short, the sense of a lightning rod, as everyone knows, to take a lightning strike from a subject. So, lightning usually hits the place where the lowest electrical resistance. Here is a lightning rod and serves to reduce this resistance. Even if the lightning strikes, it is most likely in the lightning rod. hitting a pointed object, the discharge goes into the ground.
