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.

- two Two charged particles of the equal charges are placed 1 metre apart. The initial acceleration of each of them is 1 metre per second if there are equal mass is 10 10 raise to minus 3 find the charge on each of them.
- An air-core capacitor is charged by a battery. After disconnecting it from the battery, a dielectric slab is fully inserted in between its plates. Now, which of the following quantities remains constant? A) Energy B) Voltage C) Electric Field D) Charge
- What will be the solution of Sin(3x) = 1/2 in the interval (pi, 2pi)
- Please explain that how can we make a body positively charged by earthing
- from electrostatics, volume charge distribution is when charge is uniformly distributed over the volume. Does it mean the charge is through out volume means inside the conductor also. As per me charge stays only on surface not inside the conductor than how volume charge distribution makes sense ?
- From class 12 electro statics. Why insulater get polarised when they are near to charged body when there is no free electron in insulater? as small piece of paper get polarised and gets stick to charged comb ???
