Ohms of your body

Post by nechaus » Nov 02 2013 8:06am

My tongue about 20k
My fingers dry about 700k
Wet Fingers :O About 100k

Im yet to measure full blown sweaty body which id imagine would be closer to the tongue.

My normal slightly sweaty forefinger and thumb, through my chest to the other hand is about 370 kOhm.

Since the heart will defibrillate at 0.01 amps, A voltage of 370 V will kill.

So work one-handed ;)
