I have been reading articles about earthing, and most of them use a person standing on earth, which is soil I presume, as an example to show how current flows back to the ground. What about in a real world example, like in our homes, where the flooring are made of other materials.
For example in this scenario:
In a home, I am completely barefoot, standing on surfaces say such as tile, concrete or parquet. The surfaces are squeaky clean, and bone dry. If I accidentally touched a 240v live wire, will I get electrocuted? The 3 mentioned materials are very poor conductors, hence, am I correct to say that the electrical path can't be completed, because surface material is insulating my foot so there is no direct connection to earth.
Whereas in this scenario:
I am barefoot in my home toilet, the ground is wet and the water touching my feet is flowing into the drain. I have read that copper pipes are earthed. So in this case, if I happen to touch a live wire, there is a path for the current to flow through my body, water, and the copper pipe to earth. Am I correct that say that as well?
