Facts about Electric Shock

It is the magnitude of current and the time duration that produces effect. That means a low value current for a long duration can also be fatal. The safe current/time limit for a victim to survive at 500mA is 0.2 seconds and at 50 mA is 2 seconds. The voltage of the electric supply is … Continue reading Facts about Electric Shock
