I'm trying to figure out what effects would this have on hand. Let's assume that we touch contacts of said capacitor with thumb and index finger of the same (dry and pretty clean) hand (but I'm also interested what would happen for other combination of fingers if it differs significantly). From what I know about supercapacitors, resulting "circuit" will have the following characteristics:
- It won't last for long thanks to supercapacitor's ability to discharge very quickly
- As a consequence of above, it will also have very high current
- Voltage will drop as capacitor gets discharged
As for capacitance of supercapacitor, let's say that it's 1 kilofarad (perhaps it's an entire battery of them connected in parallel?), which is quite a lot. It also was charged at 1 kilovolt.
I've tried to look up relevant information about this, but almost all sources talk mostly, if not only, about dangers of AC current going through heart, which is a most common scenario in practice but totally inapplicable in my case where DC current goes only through small part of body. Those that talk about other effects of electricity on human body, mention the following additional dangers:
I've probably missed some here since, as I said, this seems rather hard to search for (probably a good thing in a deeper sense, honestly). So, what effects on hand/body would this have?
