  • AC Voltage Advantages And Disadvantages

    One of the main organs that electricity can really harm is the heart. The heart can become ‘frozen’ or fibrillated. If the heart is frozen there is a greater chance for it to return to normal beating rather than if it was fibrillated. In the case of fibrillation the heart’s muscles can all move at once and be all over the place. The heart won’t be able to function as normal. Current approaches 100milliamps or more can be fatal. The skin will result in numerous burns from the electricity and…
