How Much Current Can The Human Body Withstand?

Table of ContentsWhy is high voltage considered dangerous?Electric shock: How much electricity will kill you?Why are we not insensitive to the current?Suggested ReadingIt is not the Voltage that can kill humans, it is the current that kills. Humans have died at as low as 42 volts. Time is also a factor. A current of 0.1 ampere for a mere 2 seconds can be fatal. As Voltage = Current x Resistance the current depends on body resistance. The internal resistance between the ears is only 100 ohms, while it is around 500 ohms when measured from finger to toe.Electric shocks are … Continue reading How Much Current Can The Human Body Withstand?
