I'm having serious trouble understanding this. If a component burns out when too much current is flowing through it, then how does turning on all stove-tops to their full setting burn out the oven's wall-plug?
Shouldn't turning on all the stove-tops increase resistance as you're adding more components to the circuit? Can someone explain (in simple terms) why this happens, also referring to mains supply and wall plugs and series/parallel phenomena. A diagram would help too I guess.
