1 OpenStax-CNX module: m Electric Hazards and the Human Body * OpenStax This work is produced by OpenStax-CNX and licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution License 3.0 Abstract Dene thermal hazard, shock hazard, and short circuit. Explain what eects various levels of current have on the human body. There are two known hazards of electricitythermal and shock. A thermal hazard is one where excessive electric power causes undesired thermal eects, such as starting a re in the wall of a house. A shock hazard occurs when electric current passes through a person. Shocks range in severity from painful, but otherwise harmless, to heart-stopping lethality. This section considers these hazards and the various factors aecting them in a quantitative manner. Electrical Safety: Systems and Devices will consider systems and devices for preventing electrical hazards. 1 Thermal Hazards Electric power causes undesired heating eects whenever electric energy is converted to thermal energy at a rate faster than it can be safely dissipated. A classic example of this is the short circuit, a low-resistance path between terminals of a voltage source. An example of a short circuit is shown in Figure 1. Insulation on wires leading to an appliance has worn through, allowing the two wires to come into contact. Such an undesired contact with a high voltage is called a short. Since the resistance of the short, r, is very small, the power dissipated in the short, P = V 2 /r, is very large. For example, if V is 120 V and r is Ω, then the power is 144 kw, much greater than that used by a typical household appliance. Thermal energy delivered at this rate will very quickly raise the temperature of surrounding materials, melting or perhaps igniting them. * Version 1.4: Sep 9, :24 pm

2 OpenStax-CNX module: m Figure 1: A short circuit is an undesired low-resistance path across a voltage source. (a) Worn insulation on the wires of a toaster allow them to come into contact with a low resistance r. Since P = V 2 /r, thermal power is created so rapidly that the cord melts or burns. (b) A schematic of the short circuit. One particularly insidious aspect of a short circuit is that its resistance may actually be decreased due to the increase in temperature. This can happen if the short creates ionization. These charged atoms and molecules are free to move and, thus, lower the resistance r. Since P = V 2 /r, the power dissipated in the short rises, possibly causing more ionization, more power, and so on. High voltages, such as the 480-V AC used in some industrial applications, lend themselves to this hazard, because higher voltages create higher initial power production in a short. Another serious, but less dramatic, thermal hazard occurs when wires supplying power to a user are overloaded with too great a current. As discussed in the previous section, the power dissipated in the supply wires is P = I 2 R w, where R w is the resistance of the wires and I the current owing through them. If either I or R w is too large, the wires overheat. For example, a worn appliance cord (with some of its braided wires broken) may have R w = 2.00 Ω rather than the Ω it should be. If 10.0 A of current passes through the cord, then P = I 2 R w = 200 W is dissipated in the cordmuch more than is safe. Similarly, if a wire with a Ω resistance is meant to carry a few amps, but is instead carrying 100 A, it will severely overheat. The power dissipated in the wire will in that case be P = 1000 W. Fuses and circuit breakers are used to limit excessive currents. (See Figure 2 and Figure 3.) Each device opens the circuit automatically when a

3 OpenStax-CNX module: m sustained current exceeds safe limits.

4 OpenStax-CNX module: m Figure 2: (a) A fuse has a metal strip with a low melting point that, when overheated by an excessive current, permanently breaks the connection of a circuit to a voltage source. (b) A circuit breaker is an automatic but restorable electric switch. The one shown here has a bimetallic strip that bends to the right and into the notch if overheated. The spring then forces the metal strip downward, breaking the

5 OpenStax-CNX module: m Figure 3: Schematic of a circuit with a fuse or circuit breaker in it. Fuses and circuit breakers act like automatic switches that open when sustained current exceeds desired limits. Fuses and circuit breakers for typical household voltages and currents are relatively simple to produce, but those for large voltages and currents experience special problems. For example, when a circuit breaker tries to interrupt the ow of high-voltage electricity, a spark can jump across its points that ionizes the air in the gap and allows the current to continue owing. Large circuit breakers found in power-distribution systems employ insulating gas and even use jets of gas to blow out such sparks. Here AC is safer than DC, since AC current goes through zero 120 times per second, giving a quick opportunity to extinguish these arcs. 2 Shock Hazards Electrical currents through people produce tremendously varied eects. An electrical current can be used to block back pain. The possibility of using electrical current to stimulate muscle action in paralyzed limbs, perhaps allowing paraplegics to walk, is under study. TV dramatizations in which electrical shocks are used to bring a heart attack victim out of ventricular brillation (a massively irregular, often fatal, beating of the heart) are more than common. Yet most electrical shock fatalities occur because a current put the heart into brillation. A pacemaker uses electrical shocks to stimulate the heart to beat properly. Some fatal shocks do not produce burns, but warts can be safely burned o with electric current (though freezing using liquid

6 OpenStax-CNX module: m nitrogen is now more common). Of course, there are consistent explanations for these disparate eects. The major factors upon which the eects of electrical shock depend are 1. The amount of current I 2. The path taken by the current 3. The duration of the shock 4. The frequency f of the current (f = 0 for DC) Table 1: Eects of Electrical Shock as a Function of Current 1 gives the eects of electrical shocks as a function of current for a typical accidental shock. The eects are for a shock that passes through the trunk of the body, has a duration of 1 s, and is caused by 60-Hz power. Figure 4: An electric current can cause muscular contractions with varying eects. (a) The victim is thrown backward by involuntary muscle contractions that extend the legs and torso. (b) The victim can't let go of the wire that is stimulating all the muscles in the hand. Those that close the ngers are stronger than those that open them. Eects of Electrical Shock as a Function of Current 2 Current (ma) Eect 1 Threshold of sensation continued on next page 1 For an average male shocked through trunk of body for 1 s by 60-Hz AC. Values for females are 6080% of those listed. 2 For an average male shocked through trunk of body for 1 s by 60-Hz AC. Values for females are 6080% of those listed.

7 OpenStax-CNX module: m Maximum harmless current Onset of pain Onset of sustained muscular contraction; cannot let go for duration of shock; contraction of chest muscles may stop breathing during shock Ventricular brillation possible; often fatal 300 Onset of burns depending on concentration of current 6000 (6 A) Onset of sustained ventricular contraction and respiratory paralysis; both cease when shock ends; heartbeat may return to normal; used to debrillate the heart Table 1 Our bodies are relatively good conductors due to the water in our bodies. Given that larger currents will ow through sections with lower resistance (to be further discussed in the next chapter), electric currents preferentially ow through paths in the human body that have a minimum resistance in a direct path to earth. The earth is a natural electron sink. Wearing insulating shoes, a requirement in many professions, prohibits a pathway for electrons by providing a large resistance in that path. Whenever working with high-power tools (drills), or in risky situations, ensure that you do not provide a pathway for current ow (especially through the heart). Very small currents pass harmlessly and unfelt through the body. This happens to you regularly without your knowledge. The threshold of sensation is only 1 ma and, although unpleasant, shocks are apparently harmless for currents less than 5 ma. A great number of safety rules take the 5-mA value for the maximum allowed shock. At 10 to 20 ma and above, the current can stimulate sustained muscular contractions much as regular nerve impulses do. People sometimes say they were knocked across the room by a shock, but what really happened was that certain muscles contracted, propelling them in a manner not of their own choosing. (See Figure 4(a).) More frightening, and potentially more dangerous, is the can't let go eect illustrated in Figure 4(b). The muscles that close the ngers are stronger than those that open them, so the hand closes involuntarily on the wire shocking it. This can prolong the shock indenitely. It can also be a danger to a person trying to rescue the victim, because the rescuer's hand may close about the victim's wrist. Usually the best way to help the victim is to give the st a hard knock/blow/jar with an insulator or to throw an insulator at the st. Modern electric fences, used in animal enclosures, are now pulsed on and o to allow people who touch them to get free, rendering them less lethal than in the past. Greater currents may aect the heart. Its electrical patterns can be disrupted, so that it beats irregularly and ineectively in a condition called ventricular brillation. This condition often lingers after the shock and is fatal due to a lack of blood circulation. The threshold for ventricular brillation is between 100 and 300 ma. At about 300 ma and above, the shock can cause burns, depending on the concentration of currentthe more concentrated, the greater the likelihood of burns. Very large currents cause the heart and diaphragm to contract for the duration of the shock. Both the heart and breathing stop. Interestingly, both often return to normal following the shock. The electrical patterns on the heart are completely erased in a manner that the heart can start afresh with normal beating, as opposed to the permanent disruption caused by smaller currents that can put the heart into ventricular brillation. The latter is something like scribbling on a blackboard, whereas the former completely erases it. TV dramatizations of electric shock used to bring a heart attack victim out of ventricular brillation also show large paddles. These are used to spread out current passed through the victim to reduce the likelihood of burns. Current is the major factor determining shock severity (given that other conditions such as path, duration, and frequency are xed, such as in the table and preceding discussion). A larger voltage is more hazardous,

8 OpenStax-CNX module: m but since I = V/R, the severity of the shock depends on the combination of voltage and resistance. For example, a person with dry skin has a resistance of about 200 kω. If he comes into contact with 120-V AC, a current I = (120 V) / (200 k Ω) = 0.6 ma passes harmlessly through him. The same person soaking wet may have a resistance of 10.0 kω and the same 120 V will produce a current of 12 maabove the can't let go threshold and potentially dangerous. Most of the body's resistance is in its dry skin. When wet, salts go into ion form, lowering the resistance signicantly. The interior of the body has a much lower resistance than dry skin because of all the ionic solutions and uids it contains. If skin resistance is bypassed, such as by an intravenous infusion, a catheter, or exposed pacemaker leads, a person is rendered microshock sensitive. In this condition, currents about 1/1000 those listed in Table 1: Eects of Electrical Shock as a Function of Current 3 produce similar eects. During open-heart surgery, currents as small as 20 µa can be used to still the heart. Stringent electrical safety requirements in hospitals, particularly in surgery and intensive care, are related to the doubly disadvantaged microshock-sensitive patient. The break in the skin has reduced his resistance, and so the same voltage causes a greater current, and a much smaller current has a greater eect. Figure 5: Graph of average values for the threshold of sensation and the can't let go current as a function of frequency. The lower the value, the more sensitive the body is at that frequency. 3 For an average male shocked through trunk of body for 1 s by 60-Hz AC. Values for females are 6080% of those listed.

9 OpenStax-CNX module: m Factors other than current that aect the severity of a shock are its path, duration, and AC frequency. Path has obvious consequences. For example, the heart is unaected by an electric shock through the brain, such as may be used to treat manic depression. And it is a general truth that the longer the duration of a shock, the greater its eects. Figure 5 presents a graph that illustrates the eects of frequency on a shock. The curves show the minimum current for two dierent eects, as a function of frequency. The lower the current needed, the more sensitive the body is at that frequency. Ironically, the body is most sensitive to frequencies near the 50- or 60-Hz frequencies in common use. The body is slightly less sensitive for DC (f = 0), mildly conrming Edison's claims that AC presents a greater hazard. At higher and higher frequencies, the body becomes progressively less sensitive to any eects that involve nerves. This is related to the maximum rates at which nerves can re or be stimulated. At very high frequencies, electrical current travels only on the surface of a person. Thus a wart can be burned o with very high frequency current without causing the heart to stop. (Do not try this at home with 60-Hz AC!) Some of the spectacular demonstrations of electricity, in which high-voltage arcs are passed through the air and over people's bodies, employ high frequencies and low currents. (See Figure 6.) Electrical safety devices and techniques are discussed in detail in Electrical Safety: Systems and Devices. Figure 6: Is this electric arc dangerous? The answer depends on the AC frequency and the power involved. (credit: Khimich Alex, Wikimedia Commons) 3 Section Summary The two types of electric hazards are thermal (excessive power) and shock (current through a person). Shock severity is determined by current, path, duration, and AC frequency.

10 OpenStax-CNX module: m Table 1: Eects of Electrical Shock as a Function of Current 4 lists shock hazards as a function of current. Figure 5 graphs the threshold current for two hazards as a function of frequency. 4 Conceptual Questions Exercise 1 Using an ohmmeter, a student measures the resistance between various points on his body. He nds that the resistance between two points on the same nger is about the same as the resistance between two points on opposite handsboth are several hundred thousand ohms. Furthermore, the resistance decreases when more skin is brought into contact with the probes of the ohmmeter. Finally, there is a dramatic drop in resistance (to a few thousand ohms) when the skin is wet. Explain these observations and their implications regarding skin and internal resistance of the human body. Exercise 2 What are the two major hazards of electricity? Exercise 3 Why isn't a short circuit a shock hazard? Exercise 4 What determines the severity of a shock? Can you say that a certain voltage is hazardous without further information? Exercise 5 An electried needle is used to burn o warts, with the circuit being completed by having the patient sit on a large butt plate. Why is this plate large? Exercise 6 Some surgery is performed with high-voltage electricity passing from a metal scalpel through the tissue being cut. Considering the nature of electric elds at the surface of conductors, why would you expect most of the current to ow from the sharp edge of the scalpel? Do you think high- or low-frequency AC is used? Exercise 7 Some devices often used in bathrooms, such as hairdryers, often have safety messages saying Do not use when the bathtub or basin is full of water. Why is this so? Exercise 8 We are often advised to not ick electric switches with wet hands, dry your hand rst. We are also advised to never throw water on an electric re. Why is this so? Exercise 9 Before working on a power transmission line, linemen will touch the line with the back of the hand as a nal check that the voltage is zero. Why the back of the hand? Exercise 10 Why is the resistance of wet skin so much smaller than dry, and why do blood and other bodily uids have low resistances? Exercise 11 Could a person on intravenous infusion (an IV) be microshock sensitive? Exercise 12 In view of the small currents that cause shock hazards and the larger currents that circuit breakers and fuses interrupt, how do they play a role in preventing shock hazards? 4 For an average male shocked through trunk of body for 1 s by 60-Hz AC. Values for females are 6080% of those listed.

11 OpenStax-CNX module: m Problem Exercises Exercise 13 (Solution on p. 12.) (a) How much power is dissipated in a short circuit of 240-V AC through a resistance of Ω? (b) What current ows? Exercise 14 What voltage is involved in a 1.44-kW short circuit through a Ω resistance? Exercise 15 (Solution on p. 12.) Find the current through a person and identify the likely eect on her if she touches a 120-V AC source: (a) if she is standing on a rubber mat and oers a total resistance of 300 kω; (b) if she is standing barefoot on wet grass and has a resistance of only 4000 kω. Exercise 16 While taking a bath, a person touches the metal case of a radio. The path through the person to the drainpipe and ground has a resistance of 4000 Ω. What is the smallest voltage on the case of the radio that could cause ventricular brillation? Exercise 17 (Solution on p. 12.) Foolishly trying to sh a burning piece of bread from a toaster with a metal butter knife, a man comes into contact with 120-V AC. He does not even feel it since, luckily, he is wearing rubber-soled shoes. What is the minimum resistance of the path the current follows through the person? Exercise 18 (a) During surgery, a current as small as 20.0 µa applied directly to the heart may cause ventricular brillation. If the resistance of the exposed heart is 300 Ω, what is the smallest voltage that poses this danger? (b) Does your answer imply that special electrical safety precautions are needed? Exercise 19 (Solution on p. 12.) (a) What is the resistance of a 220-V AC short circuit that generates a peak power of 96.8 kw? (b) What would the average power be if the voltage was 120 V AC? Exercise 20 A heart debrillator passes 10.0 A through a patient's torso for 5.00 ms in an attempt to restore normal beating. (a) How much charge passed? (b) What voltage was applied if 500 J of energy was dissipated? (c) What was the path's resistance? (d) Find the temperature increase caused in the 8.00 kg of aected tissue. Exercise 21 (Solution on p. 12.) Integrated Concepts A short circuit in a 120-V appliance cord has a Ω resistance. Calculate the temperature rise of the 2.00 g of surrounding materials, assuming their specic heat capacity is cal/g C and that it takes s for a circuit breaker to interrupt the current. Is this likely to be damaging? Exercise 22 Construct Your Own Problem Consider a person working in an environment where electric currents might pass through her body. Construct a problem in which you calculate the resistance of insulation needed to protect the person from harm. Among the things to be considered are the voltage to which the person might be exposed, likely body resistance (dry, wet,...), and acceptable currents (safe but sensed, safe and unfelt,...).
