The effect of the impedance is to prevent the immediate application of Ohm's law to an alternating-current circuit.

Properly ^ The experiments of Tesla and others have shown that at frequencies and pressures far higher than those employed for ordinary commercial purposes, the physiological effects of alternating currents be- come less severe, and that at extraordina- 50 ALTEENATING ELECTEIC CUEEENTS. high frequencies, enormous pressures may be handled with impunity. It should be remembered, however, that rily the physiological effects produced by a current depend largely on the resistance offered to its passage through the body For example, when an alter- by the skin.
