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.

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.
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. 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 paralysis of breathing.
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 volta…ge 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.
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
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 G…odfather. It's also possible that you may be able to simply buy one for Godfather points if they are offered as a Limited Time 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.
Cattle prods are intended to inflict minor electrical pain to largefarm animals in order to control them, and they can causesignificantly more pain in a person, though they ar…e unlikely tophysically injure the recipient of the jolt. . . unless you getbonked on the head with the heavy battery end or something.
Truly, it is Power that kills you. Power is the product of voltage AND current. Knowing that it takes some significant voltage to drive any current through a person, and tha…t it takes more volts to drive more current through the same load (a person's body), we can roughly judge the effect of the electrical shock based on the current: Milliamps are dangerous 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 paralysis of breathing.
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 b…ut 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.
Yes. Don't shock computers. It's mean.
Hot-shot, cattle prod, shock-prod, etc.
Yes, Very much so.!
