AC or DC, Which is more Dangerous: [Hint: You misunderstood it]

AC or DC, Which one more dangerous for the same voltage levels? In this post, you’ll learn the difference between the voltage levels and which one is more menacing for us.

Ventricular fibrillation

Ventricular fibrillation is the condition at which the heart starts breathing instead it starts quivering. For alternating current, at 50/60 Hz the ventricular fibrillation starts at 100 mA whereas for dc it starts at 500 mA. So AC is more dangerous.

Pull vs Push

The alternating current at the frequency of 50/60 Hz pulls the human body, it, in fact, tends to catch you up and can’t let you go. On the other hand, dc tends to push you away from the source. The extent of current flow also depends on the time for which current flows through the body. In this case, we see ac will be stuck for more time and is more dangerous. Also, learn What kills you volts or amps.

Let’s watch an experimental video on this topic. [Don’t try this at home]
