An electric oven of 2 kW power rating is operated in a domestic electric circuit (220 V) that has a current rating of 5 A. What result do you expect? Explain.

##### Solution :-

The current drawn by the electric oven can be calculated using the formula

$$P=V\times I$$

$$I=\frac{P}{V}$$

Substituting the values, we get

$$I=\frac{200\, W}{220\,V}=9.09\,A$$

The current drawn by the electric oven is 9.09 A, which exceeds the safe limit of the circuit. This causes the fuse to melt and break the circuit.
