Question

Why fuse wire has low melting point? Give reasons for melting of fuse wires.


Solution

A fuse wire is a safety device that prevents excess current from flowing through and damaging electrical equipment. When the fuse wire melts, it creates an open circuit and protects electrical equipment. As a result it has a low melting temperature. A fuse wire melts due to excess heating caused by a high current.
