An electrician puts a fuse of rating 5 A in that part of domestic electrical circuit in which an electric heater of rating 1.5 kW 220 V is operating. What is likely to happen in this case and why?

The above amount of current is greater than the rated value of fuse current. Hence, the fuse will melt and break the circuit.
