Keep these quizzes coming. This is great stuff to teach apprentices to see where we've come from.

I'll take issue with 5mA being the threshold of sensation for men, too. I teach this stuff and virtually every reference I've ever seen puts it at around 1mA for men and a bit less for women. It's also why UL puts a leakage current limit of 0.75mA on listed 2-prong appliances. Personal experience also bears this out. At 5mA, you will definitely want to let go as soon as possible! And at 5mA arm-to-arm, breathing can be arrested in some sensitive people. Someone needs to take fact-checking a bit more seriously at EC&M!

This is an excellent topic. It would be interesting to look at what you may have documented. Were your test assessments done at 120V to ground or 240V phase-to-phase?
