exists and is an alternate of .

The following list is the tolerances that the body can stand.

Less than 1/2 milliamp no sensation
1/2 to 2 milliamps, threshold of perception
2 to 10 milliamps, muscular contraction
5 to 25 milliamps, painful shock (may not be able to let go)
Over 25 milliamps, could be violent muscular contraction
50 to 100 milliamps, ventricular fibrillation
over 100 milliamps, paralysis of breathing and possible death.
It is any current of amplitude sufficient to terminate life functions.

How much electricity is currently produced by wind turbines?

The typical wind system delivers roughly 8 to 10% of what systems are rated at 28 MPH. If the wind gusts over this amount the system shuts down. If the wind falls to 14 MPH yo

What is the minimum amount of electricity that can be fatal?

Less than 1/2 milliamp no sensation, 1/2 to 2 milliamps threshold of perception, 2 to 10 milliamps muscular contraction, 5 to 25 milliamps painful shock (may not be able to le

What is a fatal magnitude of electric current?

This is really a medical question, but it worries me that you're even asking. The answer is that depends on where the current is flowing. If it's across your chest, even a few

How many volts of electricity can be fatal?

It is not just the voltage but the flow of current (amperes) that determines how much electricity (energy, joules) is passed through the body. A tiny current at very high volt

Why is it so many fatal accident happen in the bathroom due to electric current?

I would imagine it has a lot to do with the combination of a few contributing factors. You have water and electricity, for starters. Then there's the fact that people are usua

How much electrical current can kill a person?

It again depends on the conditions: Humidity % in atmosphere. Whether the person himself is wet or not. However for a person: 10mA is "let go" current which provides just a
