How many volts will kill a human?
It's not the volts which kill, but the current. There are stun guns which can run up to 50,000 volts, but wont do much more than stun, yet if the current is high enough (measured in amperes and 20+ miliamperes is considered lethal) 40 volts could also kill you. ...

Is there a voltage carrying limit of wire?
Yes it depends on many variables such as what the wire is made of the size of the wire whether the wire is a multi strand wire. What governs the amount of voltage a wire can carry is the insulation that is wrapped around the wire. Like wire with ratings of 300 volts, 600 volts and 1000 volts these are the highest allowable voltages that can be applied. A wire that is rated for 300 volts is good for 120 volts, 240...

If getting electrocuted at 10000 volts can kill you why is it that the majority of people survive lightning strikes?
lightning is pure voltage with no current. Current is what kills you not the amount of voltage ...

How many volts is enough to kill you?
volts dont kill you However amps do. (amps are always present in volts though.) I think it is about 13 amps that can kill you, possible that it is the standard 3amps I cant really remember sorry, was 3 years ago since I last learned that. ...
Asked in Electrical Engineering
Is it true that volts jolt but current kills?
Yes it is true that volts jolt but current kills. Current can kill you if it is high enough, and if it goes through your heart then it will most definitely kill you. Only a small amount of current is capable of killing some one. If the voltage is high enough it can send the current through your body and to your heart. ...
What is the highest range of voltage that can be detected by a tester?
The highest voltage scale on a hand held multimeter is 5000 volts.
