User: What is the device designed to detect a difference in current between circuit wires (the inward and outward paths) called? (1 point) A. Outlet plug B. Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) C. Electricity Read Monitor D. Current Path Detector

Weegy: B. Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI)

User: Fill in the blanks below: The flow of electricty is similar to the movement of water through a pipe. The movement is the __________, the force of the current is the __________, and the rate of the current is the __________. For electricy to move it requires a complete __________ so the electricty can flow both in and out. A. Circuit, Volts, Amps, Current B. Smooth, Power, Amount, System C. Circuit, Amps, Volts, Current D. Current, Volts, Amps, Circuit

Weegy: D. Current, Volts, Amps, Circuit

User: The severity of an electrical shock is dependant upon what three things?

Weegy: Generally, "B", but the options are inaccurate. Up to a certain magnitude, high-voltage a.c. produces a more severe shock that high-voltage d.c. [ After that, the situation becomes somewhat reversed. As for frequency, I've had my share of "R.F burns" working with high-power amplifiers at VHF. Believe me, not nice! "C" Could be a correct answer if you take into account the resistance between source and victim; the closer the source, the less the resistance, the greater the current. "B" is also inaccurate since the term "pathway" should be more specific. If the current passes through your chest - and thus through your heart - not good! However, if through index finger to thumb of same hand - far less likely to kill you. As for "A", although the location alone will not determine the current that flows through you, the resulting recoil might be far more life threatening than the shock itself! Like falling off a very high building, for example! In conclusion, always remember "It's the volts that jolts; it's the mills.* that kills!" (* "mills" as in milliamperes) http://answers.yahoo.com/question/?qid=20100423165257AAPAmPt ]

User: The severity of an electrical shock is dependant upon what three things? (1 point) A. Current, voltage, amperage B. Amperage, duration of exposure, pathway of electricity through the body C. Voltage, duration of exposure, amount of resistance

Weegy: The severity of an electrical shock is dependent upon amperage, duration of exposure, pathway of electricity through the body.
