Part 1

A person notices a mild shock if the current along a path through the thumb and index finger exceeds 87.6μA. Calculate the maximum allowable voltage without shock across the thumb and index finger with a dry-skin resistance of 3.25E+5Ω.

Part 2

Calculate the maximum allowable voltage with a wet-skin resistance of 1810 ohm.
