Greetings !New to the forums. Here expanding my concept of what AC Electricity is My question (correct me if wrong).. If AC power alternates between +,- at a rate of 60Hertz/second and negative is used as -earth- at the AC generator If the hot wire touches the ground would happen? (I think Nothing) Cause by the principle of my understanding if I touch a live "Hot" ac wire and I am standing still to the ground current from the "hot" wire will travel through me to reach the potencial difference cause there is no voltage in ground . But since the current is actually passing through my body I will get electrocuted. Question is if this happens would the voltage go back to neutral?
