EM8.1 Measurement of Body Resistance

Connect a 1.5 V battery, a 4.7k resistor, a micro-meter, and a volunteer in series with each other. The volunteer is connected by means of holding two metals beakers connected to the circuit. Comparisons between the short circuit, the beakers held lightly, the beakers held tightly, and the volunteer's hands placed in the beakers filled with water.

NOTE: THIS WILL BECOME DANGEROUS WHEN THE CURRENT EXCEEDS 100mA.
