In the book I am reading, there is an experiment that consists of connecting an automotive style fuse and a 1.5V battery to observe blowing of a fuse.
However my fuse does not blow. I have repeated the experiment with a 9V battery but still it doesn't work. After these results, I have tried the experiment using a DC to AC adapter which can output up to 12V.
When I tried the experiment with 12V, tiny blue sparks would appear at the connection between the fuse and the adapter's output. Furthermore, the fuse had warmed up but it still did not blow.
Why is this the case? I initially thought that the fuse would blow as soon as I connect it to any amount of voltage since there is virtually no resistance. Why my fuse doesn't fuse?
