Question

The __ is a safety device used in case of overloading and short-circuits.


Solution

The electric fuse is an important component of all domestic circuits. Overloading can occur when the live and the neutral wire come into direct contact. In such a situation, the current in the circuit abruptly increases. This is called short circuiting. The use of an electric fuse prevents the electric circuit and appliance from a possible damage by stopping the flow of high electric current.
