exists and is an alternate of .

When too much current flows through the fuse, it heats up and melts. Hence, the circuit is broken and the current does not flow through the circuit or the gadget.

How a fuse controls the flow of electric current in a circuit?

A fuse does not control the flow in a circuit, it limits the current in a circuit. If the load in a circuit shorts out the fuse link melts and opens the circuit and stops the

Too much current flowing in a circuit?

When too much current passes through a conductor it can cause an overload of electricity which if not earthed can be very dangerous to human contact. If the object that is con

Why do the wires of an electrical circuit become warm if too much current passes through them?

The power dissipated by anything when an electric current flows in it is I 2 R . ' I ' = the current through it, ' R ' = its resistance. -- "Dissipated power"
