Electricians also use the term circular mil to describe the crosssectional area of round wire. If a wire has a diameter of 1 mil, it is said to have a cross-sectional area of 1 circular mil. A circular mil is abbreviated CM. This is a convenient way to describe area, because circular mils are equal to mils squared. For example, if a round wire has a diameter of 2 mils, its cross-sectional area is equal to 22 , or 4 circular mils. Because we occasionally use square or rectangular wires, we must also have a suitable way of describing the crosssectional area of these conductors.
Figure 1-32 A fused circuit. law. 5 ampere. Therefore, the fuse does not blow as long as R is not short-circuited. We could short-circuit R by placing a screwdriver across the terminals. In such a case, the total circuit resistance would be reduced to 1 ohm, and 6 amperes of current would flow. Therefore, the fuse would immediately blow out and automatically open the circuit. Thereby, the battery is protected from damage due to excessive current drain. Note that after the fuse blows, the voltage between its terminals will be 6 volts.
