can someone explain what happens in the neutral wire.if the hot wire in a residential circuit is 120v does the neutral have a reading also if it is the return path?what would it be and why?
the neutral is connected to ground so how could it be a return path?where does it go?and also if you wire a light why do you need a return path?
please clarify for me i can't find a complete answer.
