A simple tasing question

  1. Feb 26, 2010 #1
    I guess this one is easy for you guys. But Im not sure on it myself so I thought Id ask.

    Say you tase a guy. And his hand is in water.
    Would he experience the same as another guy whose hand isnt in the water, getting the same amount of shock? And if not, why?

    A taser applies a shock between the probes of the taser. Putting his hand in water has no bearing.
