What is the function of an earth wire? Why is it necessary to earth metallic appliances?

Asked by Vishal kumar | 1 year ago |  306

##### Solution :-

The metallic body of electric appliances is earthed by means of earth wire. Any leakage of electric wire is transferred to the ground by means of earth wire. This prevents the user of the electric appliance from getting electric shocks. This is the reason why it is important for the metallic appliances to be earthed.
