When we stand on an insulating material and pass high voltage electric current through our body, the electric potential of our body gets increased. This means that the potential energy of the body increases. Does this mean that the energy of our body increases?? Like, we get energy if we stand on an insulating material and pass electric current through our body??

No. The energy of our body does not increase.
Only the charged potential increases. This does not affect the overall energy of our body.
The energy that we require to do our daily task is the ATP that we get from food. Standing on an insulating material does not increase this energy.
If that had been the case then there was no need of having food for any human being. However, that is not the case.

- Please solve this Question..
- 6.25*10^12 electrons were removed from a glass rod. What is the magnitude of positive charge acquired by the glass rod?
- what is negative charge
- if we rubbed comb in hair and then we brought near paper then we see they get attract each other ,so in that case comb is negative or positive charge ?
- charge of electron is negative but in solving numericals why we take charge of the electron POSITIVE?????
- Pick the true statements about electric field lines It provides information about the direction of the electric field Electric field lines provide information about the type of charge Electric field lines provide information about the field strength All of the above
- when some charge given to a material spreads on the entire surface, it is a conductor. how? explain
