You are given two fuse wires A and B with current rating 2A and 5A respectively.Which of the two wires would you select for fuse with a 1000W,220V room heater. Justify your answer.

power, P = VI
thus current flowing through a device will be:
I = 1000/220 =100/22 = 50/11 A
thus we can use a 5A fuse.
as  it will burn out as current is just increased over 50/11A.
