# concept of earthing ? ---- humanbody

Member Posts: 65
i have a question, i hope u dont mind it.
>> if v connect a human body and a resistor having resistance less than a human body (earthing) in PARALLEL, then too the current should flow from the humanbody, right coz human body also has resistance of 2500 ohms (normal skin)(considering the voltage as 25v)? plz answer it.

(i.e. if v connect a 1 ohm and 2 ohm resistance in parallel, with a supply of 230v, then 230 amps flow thru 1 ohm resistor and 115 amps thru 2 ohm resistor)
