Very often we about the Neutral, the Ground and the earth. Today you’ll learn the difference between neutral and ground.
Let’s consider a series circuit with a resistor and a voltage source. Assuming the current as conventional, it flows from the positive terminal of battery moves through the resistor and flows back to the source. The return path from the resistor to the negative terminal of the battery is the neutral path. Remember that the neutral path represents a returning path from which the current flows back to the circuit. Sometimes the term ground is used in such circuit to represent a common point. However, technically, it is technically not a ground.
