Figure 2-2 shows a comparison of the circular mil and the square mil. 001 INCH AREA 1 CIRCULAR MIL AREA 1 SQUARE MIL COMPARISON OF CIRCULAR MIL AND SQUARE MIL Figure 2-2 Enlarged view of circular mil and square mil. The question may be asked why we make a comparison of the circular mil and the square mil. If a square conductor is to be replaced by a round conductor, or vice versa, we must use the same cross-sectional area to obtain the same conductivity. Therefore, electricians need to know how to change circular mils into square mils, and vice versa.

The load R has a resistance of 29 ohms, making a total of 30 ohms of circuit resistance. 5 A)1 Ω R29 Ω SWITCH FUSE (A) Pictorial diagram.

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.
