Answer to Question #65468 in Electric Circuits for Helen
de Graaff generator could hold on its dome was about 5 µC. Assume that when you get
shocked by the generator, all of this charge passes through you in just one-hundredth
of a second (1.00 × 10−2
s). (a) Calculate the associated average current for getting
shocked by the Van de Graaff generator, and express your answer in units of mA
(milli-amperes). Now, let’s say you are feeling bold and opt to lick a 9 V battery. The
resistance for wet skin is about 2000 Ω. (b) Calculate the associated current through
your tongue when you place it across the terminals of a 9 V battery, and express your
answer in the same units of mA.
