The diagram 31 shows a 3 terminal plug socket.
(i) What is the purpose of the terminal E?
(ii) To which part of the appliance is the terminal E connected?
(iii) To which wire L or N, is the fuse connected and why?
(i) The purpose of the terminal E is to provide earth connection.
(ii) Terminal E is connected to the earth pin of the plug.
(iii) Fuse is connected in series with the wire L, so that if excess current flows through the circuit, the fuse wire get heated up and melts thus, breaking the circuit and preventing the flow of current to the appliance.
