The Physics in Blowing a Fuse



You know when you're in the bathroom and you're running the blow dryer, the space heater because it's winter, and then you decide to plug in your phone to charge? And then all of a sudden everything will shut off and make you really angry?

Well, all the power/electricity they were using in the bathroom caused the ciruit to blow. Then you'll end up having to go in the basement and reset the fuse box. Each room in your house has some sort of circuit setup for the electricity to run through. And each circuit can only contain so much until the wires overheat. This can be very dangerous, so as a safety precaution, if the wires are close to overheating they'll shut off to prevent a fire. Next time, try not to have everything plugged in at once!
