A1_6 Ali G Cracks The Safe

Harneet K. Sangha, Taranpreet K. Sohal, Heidi B. Thiemann, Gregory A. Childs


Ali G sets up an elaborate plan to break into a safe - he links a series of cars together via their batteries to a human chain, to carry an electric current along, break into a safe and retrieve a video tape. We found the current needed to melt the lock of the safe to break it to be 7.98x10^5 A. The current calculated that reaches the safe in the scenario is 4.59x10^-5 A, therefore it would not be possible to break into the safe via the method used in the film.
