Question

Why does the fuse wire have low melting point?


Solution

A fuse wire has a low melting point. Whenever the current flowing through an electric circuit exceeds the safety limit, the fuse wire heats up and melts down, resulting in a break in the path of current flow. This stops the flow of current in the circuit.
