The efficacy of a bullet is tested by hitting ballistic gel models that mirror the density and viscosity of the human flesh.
When Andy from Photonicinduction wanted to test the reaction of the human muscle to extraordinarily high voltages, he decided to use the same ballistic gelatin.
Andy has a vast experience of 25 years in the domain of electricity and has used an impressive set of high-voltage equipment to electrocute various things for the benefit of his web viewers, over the last eight years.
He used his large power supplies to apply a voltage to the ballistic gel, starting from lower values and working his way up. The metal probes slid through the ballistic gel as if it was butter at the voltage of 250 volts. At 2500 volts, the ballistic gel starts to boil. At 100,000 volts, the ballistic gel is surrounded by lightning.
Voltage refers to the potential difference between the two points while the ampere of the current is a measure of the rate of charge flow from one point to the other. The lethality of the electric current implies that it must have both a high voltage as well as a strong current.
While the conductive properties of the ballistic gel may not be akin to the human flesh, it is certainly not something to be tried at home!
