I'm connecting a test light to one pin of an halogen lamp. When I touch the metallic part on the back of the test light, the light glows, as it is supposed to. However, I have thick shoes and I am standing on a carpet. How could I possibly provide a path to ground?
I have tried:
- to stand on a plastic sheet -- the light still glows with the same intensity
- to touch a radiator with the other hand -- the light is much more intense
- to interpose my shoe between the metallic part of the test light and me -- the light does not glow
- to interpose a paper sheet -- the light still glows
Thank you for any response
