# If I have a battery, and I connect two very long cables to it, with their ends separated, will I feel the current as soon as I touch both ends? [duplicate]

Suppose I set up something like in this diagram (sorry for the terrible hand drawing):

When I touch both ends of the cables, will I feel the current/die immediately (if the voltage is high enough)?

• No, it is not so bad. With what did you make the drawing? – peterh - Reinstate Monica Dec 10 '16 at 2:13
• @peterh Thanks! I used this online tool: sumopaint.com/home and my mouse. – YoTengoUnLCD Dec 12 '16 at 23:49
