Solution

Current drawn by the electric oven can be obtained by the expression,
P = VI

Where,
Current = I
Power of the oven, P = 2 kW = 2000 W
Voltage supplied, V = 220 V

I = 2000/220 = 9.09 A
Hence, the current drawn by the electric oven is 9.09 A, which exceeds the safe limit of the circuit. Fuse element of the electric fuse will melt and break the circuit.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
