I got tazed by a color tv, the old tube kind. Rendered me unconscious for several minutes. Not sure if it was the shock or the fact that I few backwards and whacked my head on the floor really hard. I'm thinking the first because I have no recollection of hitting the floor.

22000 Volts with enough current to kill you, will do that to you. You're lucky to be alive!

How many joules in 22000 volts?

You also need to know the current and how long you're applying it as well, to figure that one out :/

My Google search returned a bunch of freakish equations. I'll just take your word for it.

Basically it's Voltage x Current x Seconds (how long you are applying the voltage and current)

I the case of JJ , I'm guessing less than a second. Current will depend on the electrical resistance of JJ's body to ground.

Probably closer to 25kV. It was a large old fashioned screen.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Workbench was grounded and my other arm was probably resting on it. The lesson to learn is that just because you see an alligator clip plugged into the lab bench ground port and a screw driver on the other end, and see the anode cap removed, don't assume your lab partner discharged the tube.

The lesson I learn from this is, never ever trust anybody with anything. :idea:

You had a pretty decent kill there, Jayman. Two and a half days.
Respect!
