Question

# The essential requirements of a fuse wire are ___________.A. High resistance and high melting point.B. High Resistance and low melting point.C. Low resistance and low melting point.D. Low resistance and high melting point.

When compared to the load resistance, the fuse wire has lower resistance than the load resistance. But when the fuse wire is compared with the circuit wire of the same length it is seen that the fuse wire has high resistance. A fuse wire with a resistance of (0-5)$\Omega$ is considered as a good fuse wire.
