When live neutral wires in a domestic circui t come in contact with each other what occurs?
If the live and neutral wires come into contact the circuit is completed and a current will flow. Since there is no appliance in the circuit and the resistance in the wires is low the current will rapidly rise to high levels. Typically a safety device, a fuse or circuit breaker, will then react and stop the current flowing. The reaction speed of the safety devices is normally not quick enough to prevent a shower of sparks (molten metal) and melt damage to the wires where they touched.

What do black dots represent in a wiring schematic?
What would happen to the other light bulb in the circuit if one light bulb burns out?
This depends on how the circuit is wired. If there is only a single pair of wires on the circuit, then the blowing of either bulb will break the circuit, and both bulbs will go out. OTOH, if a separate pair of wires is run to each bulb from/to the power source and ground, then one bulb can blow, and the other one will stay lit because it still has power. In that circumstance, however, there are really multiple circuits; one for each bulb. Answer If the lamps are connected in series then, if one lamp burns out, the other lamp will stop working. If the lamps are connected in parallel, then a burnt-out lamp will not affect the operation of the other lamp.
Found 2 wires on a single circuit breaker why?
How can one electrical circuit affect another electrical circuit?
In many, many ways, some of which are very hard to detect or measure. You'll have to be more specific. :) However, we will attemt an exhaustive list anyways: Magnetic Induction: the currents running within two nearby circuits can affect each other Sparks: High-energy electrons flying from one circuit can damage another circuit they reach Mechanical interference: I'm going out on a limb here, but a motor attached to one circuit could tangle the wires of another the list goes on...

How do you wire a monoblock amp to two subs?
I recently bought a pair of subwoofers and a 850w monoblock amp. I just hooked them up parallel with each other. That is I took the two positive wires and put them both in the same hole on the amp, then did the same with the negative. They can also be hooked up in series with each other, that is, running one set of wires from the amp to one sub then wires from that sub to the other. Mine sound pretty amazing like i have them.

Is it possible to change 220volt to two 110volt?
The answer is yes, provided your 220 line has with it a ground wire (usually white). You simple connect two wires to the white ground wire that runs with the other two 220 wires (red and black). These will be used as ground wires for your 110's and should also be white. You can then use one of these two ground wires with one of the 220 wires ( say the red one) to form a 110 circuit. You then use the other ground wire with the black 220 wire to form your other 110 circuit. This will probably not satisfy your local housing code. If you do this I suggest not using more then 5 amps in each of your 110 circuits. No more then 5 light bulbs per circuit.
