Textbook Problem

A short circuit is a circuit containing a path of very low resistance in parallel with some other part of the circuit. Discuss the effect of a short circuit on the portion of the circuit it parallels. Use a lamp with a frayed line cord as an example.

To determine
The effect of short circuit on the portion of the circuit it parallels.

Explanation

In case of a short circuit, the current flows in an unintended path with no electrical impedance.

During short circuit, the conductors of the lamp come in contact causing very low resistance in the path parallel to the lamp. As a result, the lamp goes out. However, very large current will flow through the power source and the wiring...
