# An Electric Kettle is Rated 3 Kw, 250 V. Give Reason Whether this Kettle Can Be Used in a Circuit Which Contains a 13 a Fuse. - Physics

An electric kettle is rated 3 kW, 250 V. give reason whether this kettle can be used in a circuit
which contains a 13 A fuse.

#### Solution

Yes, this kettle can be used in a circuit which contains a 13 A fuse because safe limit of current
for kettle is,

I =  (3000W)/(250V) = 12 A

Concept: Fuses
