How Does an Electric Plug Work?

Answer

An electric plug is connected to the wall and connected to three colour coded wires. The red/black wire represents live wire, the white wire is neutral wire while the green wire is for the earth wire. Appliances are connected to its outlet. The plug will allow the electricity to pass from the electrical wiring to the appliance when needed.
