Recent experimental evidence has shown that laser pulses tuned to the right frequency can kill certain viruses.
However, locating these so-called resonant frequencies is a bit of trial and error.
What frequency can kill you?
If you’re exposed to 177 dB sound waves at 0.5 to 8 Hz, it can start messing with your lungs, making your breathing erratic and literally shaking your bones around. Short-term exposure can damage your joints, but the effects of chronic exposure can include nausea and visual impairment [source: Horowitz].
What frequencies are harmful to humans?
Low frequency sounds can be harmful
Human beings are normally able to detect sounds in the range of 20-20,000 Hz and it is well known that sounds within this range can damage the hearing. However, sounds under the frequency of 20 Hz can also affect the ear even though we are unable to hear them.
What sound frequency can kill humans?
150 decibels is usually considered enough to burst your eardrums, but the threshold for death is usually pegged at around 185-200 dB. A passenger car driving by at 25 feet is about 60 dB, being next to a jackhammer or lawn mower is around 100 dB, a nearby chainsaw is 120 dB.
Can frequencies make you sick?
Increasing exposure to ultrasound in the air causes nausea, dizziness, migraine, fatigue and tinnitus. LONDON: Exposure to airborne ultrasound – high frequency sounds beyond the range of human hearing – from public address systems, loudspeakers and door sensors may be making people ill, a new study has claimed.
