Some people may become confused with grounding and bonding because they do not know what these terms are for. These are terms that are commonly used for electrical engineering. If this is related to what you are learning, you should know some differences between the two. Grounding electrical currents will make sure that the various appliances that you will use are safe.

This means that if in case lightning will strike, it will prevent the appliances that you are using to pass on the strong voltage of electricity to you. Electrical bonding will also help protect you from an electrical shock, but this is a process that needs to be done to make sure that there is a switch that will turn off the item that is currently faulty.

If you want to learn about bonding and grounding, you will have to look at circuits and electrical engineering. Many buildings use bonding and grounding. These buildings include those for commercial, industrial, and institutional uses. Two electrical conductors that come together are called bonding. If something is bonded, that does not mean that you should not make it safe. However, the bonding purpose is to make the circuits safe.

Grounding, on the other hand, means that the part of the circuit that has the current is sent to the ground or earth. This is also done for safety reasons, just like the bonding is. However, it is done differently to make it safe when dealing with electricity.
