Demonstrating Earth Connections and Fuses Working Together
Harrison, Mark
Physics Education, v52 n2 Article 023008 Mar 2017
Earth wires and fuses work together in UK mains circuits to keep users safe from electric shocks and are taught in many school contexts. The subject can be quite abstract and difficult for pupils to grasp, and a simple but visually clear and direct demonstration is described which would be easy for most physics departments to build and which can make the concepts much more immediately understandable.
