electrical ground
  • The earth, which is arbitrarily considered to have an electric potential of zero. Also, a conducting path to the earth. For instance, a path which leads to a large copper plate buried in moist soil. Also, a conducting object, such as a wire, leading to the earth. Also called earth (2), or ground (2).
  • A large conducting body whose electric potential is arbitrarily considered to be zero. Also, a conducting path to such a body. Also, a conducting object, such as a wire, leading to such a conducting body. Also called earth (3), or ground (3).
  • Within a circuit, a point which is at zero potential with respect to an electrical ground (1), or electrical ground (2). Also called earth (4). or ground (4).
  • To connect to an electrical ground (1), electrical ground (2), or electrical ground (3). A path to an electrical ground may be intentional or accidental. Also called earth (5), or ground (5).
