Hi I am currently doing my electrical NVQ and have asked a few electricians this question and wanted to clear things up. If we touch an electrical conductor and are standing on the mass of earth will the current flow through us and back to the transformer or just dissipate into the ground. I’m confused as I’ve also been told when insulated from Earth we can still receive a shock due to the bodies capacitance.
Thank you for your help in advance.
