Define overloading and short-circuiting of an electrical circuit.

Super User Accepted Answer Pending Moderation

Overloading: Overheating of electrical wires in any circuit due to the passage of high current through it is known as overloading of an electrical circuit.


Short-circuiting : The sudden flow of very large current due to direct contact of a live wire with the neutral wire is termed as short circuiting.This may be the cause of electrical fires in houses.
