This might seem a stupid question and i believe it is but:
I would like to know why do electronics burn/get fried? Is it because of over current, because that over current causes an extreme increase in temperature at a specific spot which actually melts the material of the electronic component or for any other reasons? (eg voltage related)
Lets say i have a fuse rated for 1A. I pass 5 A through while keeping it cool with liquid nitrogen. Will the fuse burn?
Lets say i configure pin 5 of the arduino as output and set it low(ground it) with digital write, so that it sinks current. If i pass 1A (@5volts)(It is supposed to withstand 40mA of current) for as little time as it takes to go from 1 line of code to the next
will the chip or pin burn?
Thank you in advance people
