What combination of volts to amps in cattle prod type devices will kill pernicious weeds such as thistles?
No combination of volts to amps in cattle prod type devices kills pernicious weeds such as thistles. Volts and amps are linked by a mathematical principle, known as Ohm's law, that states that V=IR, where V is voltage, I is current (amps) and R is resistance. In general, biological systems -- especially human -- are most dramatically affected by amperage. Any cattle prod type device that delivers sufficient amperage to fry weeds will be as dangerous to the user as to the property.

NO never. Don't risk it, you might kill it. Get some basic training, buy a book. There is no need ever to do that.. If you can't handle the dog, give it to a loving home.. Try the cattle prod on yourself see how it feels that gives you your answer.
At Zamzows we carry a spay concentrate product called Zamzows Ultra Weed Control . This comes in Ready to Use and in concentrate. This product is safe for kids and pets once it is dry. Zamzows Ultra Weed Control in the concentrate form also "must" be applied with a tanks sprayer. When it com…es to killing thistles, I would also use a product called Stay-Put in addition to the Zamzows Ultra Weed Control . Zamzows StayPut Spreader and Sticker is used for better distribution and adhesion of all types of insecticides, herbicides and fungicides (liquids or wettable powders). StayPut helps your chemicals stick to the leaf of the plant and spread out evenly on the leaf to maximize effectiveness. By providing better distribution and adhesion of lawn and garden chemicals you can achieve greater effectiveness from your sprays and reduce leaching and product waste. The use of both Zamzows Ultra Weed Control and Zamzows StayPut Spreader and Sticker will make the weed killer spray pass through the hair on the thistle leaves to get better kill ratio. It is ALMOST necessary to use both products to maximize your efficiency in killing thistle, in a timely order. There is no better tool than a hoe. It is green non chemical and does the job. (MORE)
Volts are a unit of measurement for the potential differencebetween two points. Amps are a unit for measuring the currentflowing between those two points. Potential difference is just acondition for a current to flow.
Start digging about a foot away from plant. The tap root usually grows at an angle so it is imperative to pull out the entire plant to avoid regrowth.
19" or over is legal to posess an electric 'stun' device, ie cattle prod however, if you are carrying it concealed, you may be charged with carrying a concealed weapon, making it awkward. in your car, yes, but the Canadian gestapo will try to tell you its illegal because they don't know what the rea…l laws are and make up their own as they go along. Canada customs are even worse its perfectly legal to carry a "cattle prod" in the car "for dogs" never say for people or that's illegal and they can take it away pepper spray is a far better solution (MORE)
Volt-Amp gets its name from Ohm's law, where volts X amps = watts . You will commonly see it abreviated as VA. Also called apparent power.. So, when we say volt-amps, we are alluding to a measurement of power.. Strictly speaking, VA is not always EXACTLY the same as watts though. In a DC circuit,… or an AC circuit where the load is non-reactive (purely resistive), volt-amps are exactly the same as watts. In an AC circuit where the load is reactive, current is not exactly in phase with the voltage, and watts (true power) will be lower than VA.. For example, consider a standby power generator like you might buy for a building. It may be rated for 10,000 VA if it is feeding non-reactive loads, like electric heaters and incandescent lamps. BUT, the same generator may have a watt rating of only 8,500, meaning if it is powering a reactive load like motors, flourescent lamps or computers, it is limited to less than 10,000. The difference is called power-factor. In the example above, the power-factor would be 0.85.. If you want to lean more (who doesnt?) do a google search for the following terms:. true power. apparent power. power factor. reactive power. KVAR (kilovolt-amp reactive) It is a measurement of total power. Very similar to watts. Volt-Amps is also known as VA. The formula is: VA = Volts * Amps (MORE)
If you have four 6 volt batteries with 220 amp hours each and you combine them in series to make 24 volts will the total amp hours then become 880 or remain 220?
it will remain 220. the VOLTS will quadruple, but the storage capacity of the batteries remains the same, whether you connect them in series or in parallel.
It is the amperage that will kill you. In fact the amperage range is in the milliamps (one thousandths of an amp) that are dangerous.

8,000 volts will certainly be enough to arc a small distance through you, but what really does the damage in electrocution is not the voltage, but the amperage. Think of voltage as the force with which the current is pushing it's way though something, and amperage is how much current there actually …is. If you have even as little as 5 or 10 amps running though that 8,000 volt current, it could certainly be lethal. Cattle prods are designed to operate at low amperage however, so it is unlikely that it would cause injury with a quick jolt. (MORE)
Canada thistle [ Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop.] has attractive purple flowers and sharp, dark green leaves. It easily is confused with native thistles. But it's distinguished by its aggressively fast spread horizontally and vertically through an area, at the expense of almost everything else. For it c…an reach heights of five feet. And it can alienate all other growth by its chemical releases that are toxic to plants other than its own kind.. The plant needs female and male flowers, to produce seed that germinates. But the flowers aren't found on one plant. So viable seed production can be controlled if an area ends up with only female, or only male, plants. It may be difficult to make all the necessary identifications. And so a specialist tends to be needed to tell the difference between the female and male plants, and between the exotic form and the natives.. But Canada thistle also grows by its strong root system. For the roots may grow up to 18 inches in one growing season. And through adventitious roots, fresh, new, young shoots burst through the soil surface every 3-6 inches.. Culturally, Canada thistle can't handle waterlogged soils . So overwatering may help kill it. Conserve on water by watering with collected rain water, or recycled household grey water.. Neither can Canada thistle handle shade . For it prefers an open site with full sun. So crowding and shading may help kill it.. Generally, any two out of the three-pronged strategy of repeated cutting, burning, or brushing with Glysophate will wear down invasives and weeds. But the burning and the mowing of Canada thistle must be timed to starve the root starch reserves, and to keep the plant from setting seed. And Glysophate tends to be most effective when brushed onto the stems instead of the leaves.. Heavy-handed applications of salt will kill Canada thistle. But they also will kill everything else in the area too. (MORE)
No, not really. The electric shock from a cattle prod isn't enough to kill a human, just to give a person a really nice shock.
Anything beyond 90volts might kill an human. Some are moresensitive for even lesser voltage like 30 Volts. Do not touchanything beyond 30 Volts
Is it okay to use a 12 volts 600 milliamp DC power supply with a device that says it needs 12 volts 1 amp?
No, 1 amp is 1000 milliamp your power supply will only deliver 600 milliamp or .6 of an amp.
Yes - the amperage rating on a power supply denotes the maximum output current that it can supply at the rated voltage. Drawing less than the rated amount of current (i.e. a 2 amp device with a 5 amp supply) will not damage the supply or the device being powered.
It looks like the crucial number was left out of the question, between the words "volt ... amp DC".. If the device says it needs 5 volts at 2 amp, it will run safely on any DC power supply rated at 5 volts and (2 or more) amps.
The Cattle Prod is a piece of common loot (as opposed to uncommon or rare loot) that you will find at random in the Yakuza Crates that are, from time to time, offered by the Godfather. It's also possible that you may be able to simply buy one for Godfather points if they are offered as a Limited Tim…e Offer, but I have personally never seen them available in such a fashion. . It was also once possible to receive them as a part of the Daily Chance lotto game. I received one from a winning Daily Chance ticket (I think I had 3 matching numbers) back when Daily Chance first began. However, I believe that you can no longer receive crate items for winning Daily Chance tickets. (MORE)
No you shouldn't use a 14 volt 5 amp adapter on a 12 volt 5 amp device unless you know for sure that the 12 volt device has an internal voltage regulator that will lower the voltage to the correct voltage range the device was designed to use. As long as you always take care to check the output vol…tage with a voltmeter first, to be sure that the voltage from the adapter is regulated, meaning that it does not rise when a lower current in amps is drawn from it, you may be able to use an adapter that gives the right voltage at a higher amp output rating than the device actually takes. (For example, it may be possible to use a 12 volt 7 amp adapter for a 12 volt 5 amp device.) (MORE)
Yes and no. The wiring and metal parts of a lamp may be useful, but the rest of it may be an encumbrance. Also, you can't simply plug it into a wall and have a cattle prod without having a transformer. The key to making a cattle prod is high voltage and low amperage. The standard wall outlet will gi…ve you about 25 amps and only 120 volts. That needs to be fixed before you have a cattle prod. (MORE)
In most States, no, they are readily available to farmers at their local feed store or agricultural center.
Yes. The device will pull whatever current it requires, which will be below the spec'd one amp. You're simply oversizing the power supply.

No. 6 volts in effectively undetectable by the human body and produces NO negative effects. Even 12 volts, at any amperage, will not harm you. Another Answer The reason for this is 8 amps will not flow through a human when 6 volts is applied. It is unlikely any measurable current will flow, in …fact. The current flowing through a human is what will ultimately kill them, but the voltage must be high enough to cause a lethal level of current to flow. This relationship is dictated by Ohm's law, current = voltage / resistance.

yes i am almost 100% sure they are legal in all states. i dont know if you can carry them as protection though
Errm, it's a euphamism. Innuendo. Oyster ditch = Lady Bits Lap Rocket = you guess.
The outlet is connected to and protected by a breaker or fuse in a main electric panel. The outlet should be sized to the protection. Usually utility outlets in a residence are either 15 A or 20 A. If there are multiple outlets on a circuit then the total current cannot exceed the protection value o…f the breaker or fuse. (MORE)
Truly, it is Power that kills you. Power is the product of voltage AND current.

A: NO it will not. The circuit will only draw 220 ma even if the source is capable of delivering 1000 amperes
No since the device will need to draw more current than the adapter can provide.
The voltage output of a cattle prod is typically around 4,500 to5,000 volts although it can be much lower and much higher. Taserstypically have a voltage around 50,000 volts but once skin contactis made the voltage drops to around 1,200 volts. The power ofcattle prods and tasers is more dependent on… the amps deliveredthan the actual voltage. (MORE)
Shading, spraying, and waterlogging are ways to eliminate thistle weeds from gardens.

Herbicides need to be applie…d in October and November and will be aided in their effectiveness by buzz-cutting, hoeing, preventing flowering, and solarizing. (MORE)
Your local feed-store, be it PeaveyMart or any similar livestock feed stores will supply a cattle prod.
Yes. Power supplies are rated for the amount of current they can supply at a given voltage. If your device is rated for 300 mA at 6 volts, it will only draw 300 mA from the 1 amp of supply current available. Technically you could power three of these devices from the same 1 amp power supply: .3A + ….3A + .3A =. 9 A or close enough to 1 amp. (MORE)
Yes you can will take a bit longer because its 0.7 amps u using to charge a 1Amp device. Just dont exceed 1.5 Amps or 1500mA. 1000 mA = 1 Amp
The device supplying the power must be able to supply equal current or more current than is taken by the device consuming the power. Three amps is the same as 3000 milliamps so the answer to the question is, yes.
Yes, of course you can. The load determines how much current is supplied. Your load will only draw 500 mA , yet the power supply has the capacity to supply up to 3 A, so will not be overloaded.
Your power supply can supply 1 A, but your device requires 2 A. So the power supply will be overloaded. So the simple answer is no.
One of the way so to remove garden weed thistles is to use an herbicide made for killing the weed. A cheaper alternative is to pull the weed, root and all. This will keep the plant from returning quickly or at all in the same spot.
Yes you can because the power supply can supply any load at 12 volts with a current between 0 and 3 amps.
No. If the device is designed to run on 5 amps, it won't run on 2 amps.
The supply device must have an output voltage that matches that of the load, and a current rating that exceeds that of the load. So you cannot use a load that draws 2 A from a supply device that is rated at only 1 A.
No. Your power supply must be able to supply rated voltage (12 volts) and rated current (3 amps).
Assuming 100% efficiency, there are 746 Watts per Horsepower, so 115 Volts multiplied by 15 Amps should be 1725 Watts divided by 746 Watts per HP yields 2.3 HP. I generally assume about 1 kW per HP which would result in about 1.7 HP. The current noted may be starting current and the running current …may be significantly less. (MORE)
No, the voltage of the power supply is not high enough to operate a 12 volt device.
No, it may power the device on, but only for a limited time. You are trying to draw five times more amps out of the power supply than what it was designed to operate at. If left connected to the five amp device smoke will soon appear and the power supply will probably burn open never to work again.
You can, but it probably won't provide sufficient current to powerthe device. While you have to match voltages from supply to device, the currentspec on the power supply has to equal or exceed the currentrequirements on the device. The device should naturally usewhatever current it needs, based on i…ts load. However, if the powersupply does not provider enough current, then the device may notfunction. (MORE)
