(i) Electric iron

(ii) Electric kettles

(iii) Hotplates

(iv) Heater

(5) What is element? Where we use it?

Ans- A coil of wire in which heat is produced by an electric current is called element. It is used in every electric appliance to heat those appliances.

(6) Define electromagnet.

Ans- The current is passes through a coil which is surrounded on a metal turn it to a magnet, is called electromagnet.

(7) Fill in the blanks-

(8) Which type of wire is used in the electric fuse?

Ans- Wires which are made of some special materials melt quickly and break when large electric current are passed through them are used in electric fuses.

(9) Where is to place switch in the circuit?

Ans- The switch can be placed anywhere in the circuit.

(10) What is filament?

Ans– A filament of a bulb is a thin wire which glows when an electric current passes through it. When the bulb gets fused, its filament is broken.
