A thunderstorm passes over, and unknown to the authorities a tree branch is in contact with a power line. The line is energized at 14.4kV. The tree branch has a resistance to ground of 100 k Ohm. A child walks by and touches the tree branch with the bare hand. Perform a technical analysis of the following, stating all assumptions. If the child has rubber soled shoes, is the child in danger of VFib? If the child is barefooted, is the child in danger of VFib?
