Say a person touches the live wire as shown in the first attachment, the current will flow through him and dissipates into the ground as shown in the second attachment right? the fault current through a person does not really “return” to the source as drawn in pencil correct? Also is it possible that the return current is less than the outgoing current? 2/3A vs 1/3A , assuming that the resistance of a person is 10 ohms . Much appreciated!
Sorry the second picture was not able to be attached , it just shows current dissipating into the ground in ring shaped waves propagating away from a grounding rod in the earth
