A person accidentally touches an electrical socket with both hands. By modeling the arm and the chest to be a cylindrical tube with a total length L = 2.0m, cross-sectional area A = 10^2, and resistivity rho = 1.5 ohmm, you can calculate the current in amperes through the person when a potential difference of V = 110V is applied across the two hands. Assume that the current flows only through the modeled cylindrical tube.
