Suppose that a person's body resistance is 780 .
(a) What current passes through the body when the person accidentally is connected to 110 V?

(b) If there is an alternative path to ground whose resistance is 50 , what current passes through the person?

(c) If the voltage source produces 1.5 A, how much current passes through the person in case (b)?
