Title The perception threshold for 50Hz alternating voltage and current
Original title Die Wahrnehmungsempfindlichkeit gegenüber 50Hz Wechselspannung bzw. Wechselstrom [in German]
Bibliographic information 1989, Vol.34, No.9, p.207-209. Illus. 2 ref.
Abstract The thresholds of perception of continuous and pulsed alternating current and voltage of male and female students were determined at 50Hz. There was no difference between the perception thresholds for voltage, but average perception thresholds for current were significantly higher in men than in women.
