What is electric fuse?

Asked by Mukul Tiwari | 2nd Feb, 2014, 07:12: PM

Expert Answer:

An electric fuse is an important application of the heating effect of electric current. The wires of an electric fuse are made of special materials that melt quickly and break when large electric currents are passed through them. There is a maximum limit on the current which can safely flow through a circuit. If the current exceeds this safe limit, then the wires may become overheated and may cause fire.
