Difference between short-circuit and overloading


Open in App
Solution

The differences between short-circuiting and overloading are,

Short-circuit

Overloading

1. Short-circuit develops when live wire comes into contact with neutral wire.1. Overloading occurs when the amount of current drawn by the source exceeds the amount of current the source can supply.
2. The current flow is high at the time of short-circuit.2. During overflow, current flow is lower than the flow at the time of short-circuit.
3. At the point of short-circuit, potential difference falls to zero.3. Potential difference assumes a very low but non-zero value.
