In 1806 General James Wilkinson tried to settle the border disputes between Texas and Louisiana. He helped to set up a neutral zone between the Sabine River and the Arroyo Hondo. The Neutral Ground Agreement stated that no Spanish or United Stated troops could occupy this land until the border conflict was resolved. Outlaws frequently used this neutral zone to escape the law.

Why wasn't the neutral ground agreement successful?

It wasn't successful because smugglers and fugitives from both Spanish and American territories could escape the law.

What is the reading ground to neutral?

Ideally ground and neutral should be at the same potential, but as there is current in the neutral wire and no current (normally) in the ground wire there can be a difference. I have personally measured over 25 VAC on the neutral relative to ground in some systems.

Difference between ground and neutral?

As i know,neutral is the return path of current & ground is for any leakage current

Why do some electric panel have ground and neutral bonded together?

By National Electric Code only the Main Panel should bond ground and neutral. If subpanels have ground and neutral bonded, it could cause ground loops and shock hazards.

Why no electric shock from neutral line?

There is normally no voltage on the neutral line because the neutral line is grounded. However, and this is always important, do not assume that neutral is grounded, nor that there is not an elevated voltage on neutral or ground due to a possible ground fault.

Is it OK illegal or dangerous to connect the neutral to ground to make the circuit work?

Connecting the neutral and ground wires in a circuit is dangerous and against electrical code because it can create a hazardous condition known as a ground fault. This can lead to electric shock, fires, and damage to equipment. It is important to keep the neutral and ground wires separate to ensure the safety and integrity of the electrical system.

Why are the GFCI breakers nuisance tripping in your 100 amp sub panel- is it because neutral bonded to ground?

How can you tell if the ground wire is approriately bonded to the neutral and the cabinet at the service box?

To check if the ground wire is properly bonded to the neutral and the cabinet at the service box, you can use a multimeter to test for continuity between the ground wire, the neutral wire, and the metal cabinet of the service box. If there is continuity between all three, then the bonding is appropriate. It is important to ensure that this bonding is done correctly to provide a safe electrical system.
