An Engineer Shocks Himself While Measuring the Capacitance of the Human Body Before Demonstrating a Safer Method

Engineer Mehdi Sadaghhdar from ElectroBOOM shocks himself in a recent video while measuring the capacitance of the human body before demonstrating a safer method of taking the same measurement. Sadaghhdar was taking the measurement to explain a claim he made in an earlier video that direct current hurts much less than alternating current, a conclusion he came to after repeatedly shocking himself on the tongue.

Sadaghhdar provides the specifics of his measurements including the formula for measuring the capacitance of the human body in a post on ElectroBOOM.
