Problem 57E

Why is it dangerous to touch the terminals of a high-voltage capacitor even after the charging circuit is turned off?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 57E A capacitor stores voltage.if there is not a discharge resistor the charge remains for some period after the supply voltage is turned off.then if you are not carefull you can discharge this voltage through your body and get shocked. Or it can be dangerous to touch the terminals of a high-voltage capacitor even after the charging circuit is turned off,because the charge might be still in capacitor.to ensure that the charge has dissipated one could ground the capacitor,or a attach the capacitor to a resistor to dissipate the current. .
