Homework Help: Grounded Potential Question

  1. Sep 17, 2008 #1
    This is more of a general question... if a particular conductor is grounded, all this means is that the potential of the conductor is 0 V, right?

    Pretty much. Since potential relates to the difference between two places, it means that conductor is 0V relative to ground, i.e. at the same potential as ground.
