    Unhappy a shock

    A person notices a mild shock if the current along a path through the thumb and index finger exceeds 65.4mA. Calculate the maximum allowable voltage without shock across the thumb and index finger with a dry-skin resistance of 4.12E+5 ohm.


    Calculate the maximum allowable voltage with a wet-skin resistance of 1630 ohm.

    Ohm's Law: V = IR.
