Textbook Problem

Which of the following statements is true?

  1. A short to ground causes decreased current flow.

  • An open causes unwanted voltage drops.
  • High-resistance problems can cause damage to wiring and connections.
  • High-resistance problems may cause a fuse to blow.
  • Expert Solution
    To determine

    The correct statement among the given options.

    Explanation of Solution

    Given:

    a. A short to ground causes decrease current flow.

    b. An open cause’s unwanted voltage drops.

    c. High resistance problem can cause damage to wiring and connections.

    d. High resistance problem may cause a fuse to blow.

    High resistance problems mainly occur when there is unwanted resistance present in the circuit. Corrosion present at the end of the connectors is the common cause of this unwanted resistance. This corrosion acts as an additional load in the circuit and causes some of the voltage drop into the circuit. As the resistance act as a voltage drop, it converts some of the electrical energy into heat...
