Good day to all and may I appologies up front for my lack of knowledge in all that is electrical, but I am in need of some advice regarding what may well be bread and butter basics to you chaps, here goes: Situation 1. Man makes contact with a 240 volt circuit where the resistance of the person and the floor they are stood on is 4000 ohms. Situation 2. Man makes contact with 110 volt circuit where the resistance of the person and the floor they are stood on is 4000 ohms. Which of the two situations is more likely to lead to a more serious electric shock? and why? and what effect did Ohm's law have on the outcome? I can hear you lot sniggering now!! but I have surfed the net for clues but I just cannot grasp it!! any help appreciated. Regards, Peter.
