The physiological effects of electric shocks.
The effect of an electrical shock on a body is primarly determined by the electric current flowing through the body:
|Physiological Effect on the Body|
|1 (AC) |
|Possible to feel |
|10 (AC) ||Moscular contractions |
"Can't let go"
|30 (AC) |
300 - 500 (DC)
|Ventricular fibrillation and cardiac arrest |
- AC - Alternating Current
- DC - Direct Current
- Electrical units, amps and electrical wiring, wire gauge and AWG, electrical formulas and motors.
