According to Perry Crabb, equipotential grounding is an engineering maneuver in which all conductive surfaces of a hospital room are bonded to each other and to the Earth. This process is essential to preventing stray vo... More »

Grounding strips, sometimes called grounding straps or electrostatic discharge straps, are devices designed to safely discharge any static electricity built up by a user when working with delicate electronics. A powerful... More » Home & Garden Home Maintenance Electrical

Electrical grounding reduces the risk of severe electrical shock from uninsulated metal components inside of electrical devices, appliances and power tools. When a grounded system is secured properly, the leaking current... More »

Equipotential lines can never cross. Equipotential lines indicate a certain voltage and are always constant, so for two equipotential lines to cross would mean that the area they cover has two separate voltages at the sa... More »

Two equipotential lines cannot cross. These lines are perpendicular to the electric force, and the electric force at a point in space can only point in one direction. Equipotential lines can be considered to be similar t... More » Science Physics Electricity

An earthing pin, also called a grounding pin, harmlessly absorbs electrical surges to prevent electrical shocks in the event of a short circuit. It transfers the power surge to a solid copper grounding rod that is attach... More »

Electric field lines are drawn around charges to represent the direction as well as the strength of the field around the charges. Equipotential lines are drawn perpendicular to each electric field line and connect the el... More »
