If they did, then as we just said, a large voltage would be across their body, driving a large current, and shocking them, hurting them.
This results in a larger voltage of 3.8-4 V that prevents electrolyte oxidation.
So they put a large voltage between two pieces of metal, and the same thing happened.
Consider first a surface biased to a large negative voltage.
This charge build up develops a large positive voltage on the platter, typically around a few hundred volts.
Ideally one would want very large thermopower values since only a small amount of heat is then necessary to create a large voltage.
These large voltages lead to high-energy ion bombardment of surfaces.
Thus, even large voltages can yield relatively small currents.
But large voltages, sometimes 500 to 1,000 volts, are required to break the bonds within the gas molecules.
Poor service quality is also characterized by large voltage and frequent fluctuations.
