Problem 12RQ

How does wetness affect the resistance of your body?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 12RQ Step 1 of : Wetness decreases the resistance in the body. Step 2 of 3: Since when we are wet, water makes a surface on the skin. This configuration of water on the skin is equivalent to the body and the water in parallel configuration. As the resistance of the body alone is always greater than the total resistance of the body and water connected in parallel because the resistance of the circuit goes on decreasing when we add resistive components parallely, The circuits can be written as, (A)wetless body (B) wet body
