Extensive air showers (EAS) are a cascade of electromagnetic radiation and ionized particles that produced in the atmosphere through the interaction of a primary cosmic ray with the atom's nucleus in the air producing a huge amount of secondary particles such as X-ray, electrons, neutrons, muons, alpha particles, etc. In this work, EAS effects were demonstrated by estimating the lateral distribution function (LDF) at ultrahigh energies of the various cosmic ray particles. The LDF of charged particles such as electron and positron pair production, gamma and muons particles was simulated at ultrahigh energies 1016, 1018 and 1019 eV. The simulation was carried out using an air shower simulator called AIRES system version 2.6.0. The effect of the primary particles, energies and zenith angle (8) on the LDF of charged particles produced in the EAS was taken into account. Comparison of LDF for charged particles and experimental results gave good agreement for electron and positron pair production and muons particles at 1019eV for 8=cr and 1cr.
