(a) Why is it dangerous to touch the terminals of a high-voltage capacitor even after the voltage source that charged the battery is disconnected from the capacitor? (b) What can be done to make the capacitor safe to handle after the voltage source has been removed?


To determine
Why it is dangerous to touch the capacitor even after the disconnection of source.


Capacitor is an electrical device which is used to store charges. Capacitance is measured in farad (F).

When the capacitor is connected to the voltage source, it gets charged. Even after removing the source from connection, the charges are present...


To determine
The safety measure that needs to be done to the capacitor.
