- 9.Why can birds sit on a power line?
- A.
Because birds have minimal resistance compared to household electronics, so current is diverted to the houses instead

- B.
Because the wire is in the air and air has infinite resistance so no current flows through the wire

- C.
Because birds' feet are insulated so current is not conducted through them

- D.
Because both feet are on the same voltage line, so there is no potential difference, so current does not flow through the bird

- 10.What if a bird sat on a power line that was very close to the ground, placing one foot on the wire and one foot on the ground?
- A.
No current would flow through the bird, so nothing would happen

- B.
The bird would experience a voltage difference between the wire and the ground and would get fried

- C.
The bird's feet are insulated, so it doesn't matter what it touches
