In Plug used in house,Why Earth of the plug more thicker & deeper?..

Answer / arul

Thicker:in conducter area is high conductor resistense is
low so earth pin resistense less than two two pin.
deeper:first equipment will earthed next get the power
supply so earth pin is deeper.

In Plug used in house,Why Earth of the plug more thicker & deeper?..

Answer / swapnil borade

we know that resistance is inversely proportional to area, as area is large then resistance is small & length of earth pin is large because first pin connected is earth & last disconnected is also earth & this is for to discharge the current & to protect the human body.

Answer / n.ashok kumar

it is for convinence the head of the plug is thicker.suppose
the plug is not thicker,it same size of other(phase&neutral)
pin. sometimes we are all(if you are in tention)rotate the
plug and fix to the socket.it make electric shock on
appliance body .because earth wire connected to the
appliance body.

I just know that ring main unit has total three breakers, fuses and use to supply a power to any load/ building without any interrupt. But i am not be able to visualize the connections, either Ring main unit getting power from two different power sources? or there is always one feeder in complete ring circuit??? I would be highly thanks full of you help me.
