# What happens if water is treated to AC power supply of 12 kV and 14 kHz? [closed]

Generally water splits to oxygen and hydrogen at $$\pu{1.23 V}$$. What happens if we treat water at several $$\pu{kV}$$ with frequency range of $$\pu{10 kHz}$$ to $$\pu{15 kHz}$$ AC supply.

• Short circuiting, fuse blowing or even buying a new power supply is going to happen. – andselisk Feb 26 '19 at 8:35
• Well, you can try it and find out, if you wanna risk your life, that is. BTW 1.23 V isn't enough to make the reaction go with and significant pace. – Mithoron Feb 26 '19 at 17:08
