A bird sitting on 11000V wire is not hurt while a person touching 220 V wires affected very much eve

Expert Answer:

this is because we feel current when the current flows in our body  , when we touch a wire we are on ground due to which current passes from our body and we feel the effect, whereas when bird sits on wire no current flows from the body of the bird as it is not in contact of ground or wall. therefore the bird is not hurt.
