Dear Student


The earth wire is connected as a safety measure with all electrical appliances that have metallic body e.g., microwave, electric press, toaster, geyser, cooler, AC, etc. The earth wire provides a low resistance conducting path for electric current. If there is any leakage of current then the user would not get any current because the current flows down into the earth and keeps the potential of the appliance and earth same.

Thanks
