Series-parallel analogies and voltmeter loading effects discussion | eet110 | ECPI University
The human body can be thought of as a series-parallel analogy. Some parts are in series and some parts are in parallel. In addition, the human body can be modeled as an electrical circuit.
In your original post:
- Identify what parts of the body would be considered series and what parts would be considered parallel.
- Discuss how the series and parallel systems function together as a series-parallel circuit in your analogy.
- Explain how electricity can travel through the body using a series-parallel electrical model. How does this relate to touch, step, and step-touch potential?
- Finally, Discuss the loading effect of a voltmeter on a circuit. How does the voltmeter’s internal resistance affect the loading effect?
