Name two safety measures commonly used in electric circuits and appliances.
Two safety measures commonly used in electric circuits and appliances are
1) Use of Electric Fuse: we add an electric fuse in series with our circuit to protect our circuit in the events when the current through the circuit becomes extremely high. When the current is high fuse breaks and the circuit gets isolated from the supply.
2) Earthing to prevent shock: we connect a proper ground connection so that whenever there is any leakage current in any appliance, it directly gets transferred to the ground without giving a shock to the person using the appliance.
