If you can see a spark and hear it you have releeased about 10 volts of ESD. T or F and why?

The smallest ESD event most people can detect is about 3,000 volts. This same voltage, when applied to an ESDS device, can result in catastrophic failure. Some parts are severely damaged by ESD events of tens of volts. Thus, many damaging ESD events are not noticeable.
BTW the shock produced from your carpet "Zap" is about 35,000 volts, just little to no amps:
Hope this helps
