1. What is a stun gun?
A stun gun is a hand-held, battery-powered device designed to deliver an electric shock to an attacker. They are not guns in the traditional sense, because they don’t shoot anything or anybody. A stun gun has two prongs at the end of the device. Touching an attacker with the prongs and pulling the trigger will cause an electrical current to go from the prongs through the attacker’s clothes into his body.
The pulsed current causes muscles to work super fast, depleting them of needed blood sugars. It also interrupts the tiny neurological impulses that control muscle movement. The results are disorientation and loss of balance. The entire process takes only a few seconds and is very painful. It can disable a person for up to 30 minutes.
Although the voltage can be as high as 3,000,000 volts, the amperage is low, so it will not cause any permanent damage to the person who receives the shock. A stun gun is a great protection device.
2. Do stun guns really put out the voltages they claim?
Nobody can actually answer this question. Stun gun manufacturers claim to produce stun guns capable of producing millions of volts of energy but measurements of these high voltages is difficult. The use of an Oscilloscope is the common method of measuring these high voltage devices, but equipment limitations generally prevent standard Oscilloscopes from accurately measuring voltages in the millions.
In reality, voltage outputs are generally estimated using mathematical calculations as well as arc measurements.
3. Can current pass through someone being stunned and into myself if they touch me?
No. The voltages produced by stun guns and the low amperages do not allow the current to pass from one human to another.ype your paragraph here.
