Which is the most harmful form of electricution, AC or DC current ? This is an interesting question, but it is a trick question, or at least a tricky one. IF one is being electrocuted, the damage done is really not relevant to AC or DC. Injury from electrocution is cause by Amps, not volts or polarity, as far as I can tell. The average electric chair is DC, but most accidents happen with AC, so who knows ? DC appliances are usually older and less well insulated therefore more dangerous, but the damage is not any worse than any other kind of electrocution. I hope this is a sufficient answer for you, it's kind of a tricky question.
