Does an electrical equipment consume life if the primary switch is moved out on, but the equipment is not human being used?
NO. As engery will be consumed only when here is flow of current. Source(s): my Knowledge.
Yep. If a piece of equipment is in "standby" or "sleep" mode, it's still using power. In reality, the US Government has a website with more details, and also urges consumers to not put devices on standby unless it's really requisite. See link. Source(s): http://standby.lbl.gov/
yes as joule's law of heat staes dat power is consumed if current flows through an electric eqiupment even it is not doing nay work
no,if the equipment is not in use then it can't consume the life.it depends upon the weather conditions.
only if it produces heat surrounded by that state...
It depends on whether or not at hand are ancillary attachments that may be taking energy.
Most electronics are always working, even if they're not doing anything functional. For example, even if your printer isn't printing anything, it's constantly checking the USB port for background.
Yes it does,it's on standby.
As long as there is a circuit in the equipment which is closed [don't verbs it as switched off ; a circuit is closed when a path exists for the current to go beyond thru it from the live pole to the neutral pole], the equipment will consume energy... it could be a small neon indicator, it cud be a LED indicator, it cud even be a transformer supplying current to a standby switching device and so on... AND resourcefully if you mean MAINS switch is the MAIN circuit breaker to the connected loads, then no dynamism is consumed by the loads connected to the circuit with the mains switch turned past its sell-by date. :) Source(s): understanding
