A single pole breaker will take up one single slot in a household distribution panel. A two pole breaker will take up two slots in the distribution panel. Older double pole breaker installations had two breakers side by side with the two switch handles physically tied together. Today two pole breakers are one unit containing two output terminals for the output circuit. This new configuration has only one handle to operate both sides of the breaker for shutting the circuit off and resetting a tripped breaker.

Add up your amps to calculate your breaker size. Add up your loads (amps), divide by 0.8, and choose that size breaker. If that number does not correspond to a standard size breaker you go to the next higher standard size breaker.

install breaker in panel and put the hot wire on the breaker and also there should be a place for the neutral on the breaker also both wires will be landed on the breaker in different spots and then take the white wire that is coiled on breaker and land it on the neutral bar

Breaker is a protective device that cuts off the electrical circuit in case of fault. The additional breaker can be provided as backup protection locally, which is known as local back up.
