Negative ground

Negative * positive = negative Positive * positive = positive Negative * negative = positive

Negative * positive = negative Positive * positive = positive Negative * negative = positive

A negative divided by a positive is negative. A negative divided by a negative is positive. A positive divided by a positive is positive. A positive divided by a negative is negative.

positive and a positive is a positive negative and a negative is a positive to answer your question: positive and a negative is a negative.

No, it is negative ground.

NO! positive is red and black is negative negative is grounded to the frame of the car, and positive goes to the electrical components.

...Guys...This is the answer of question...it simple! If we grounded the electroscope..whatever the charge on leaves are, positive or negative (as it depends with which charge you electrolyse the electroscope), if its positive and ground is negative (attraction) or if same + + so repultion

any any one positive or negative has to be grounded to reduce wire length , normally -ve is chosen as ground any any one positive or negative has to be grounded to reduce wire length , normally -ve is chosen as ground

your coil's got a posative and a negative... Positive is Ignition hot and the negative connects to the distributor

A DC circuit, of course, does not need to be grounded. It just needs a path from the negative to the positive (the actual flow of electrons). One can often simplify the wiring by using a common "ground" bus which might include a car's chassis for example. If the negative terminal is grounded, then everything that is not "ground" would be positive. Likewise, if the positive terminal is grounded, then everything that is not "ground" is negative. Since you are looking at return paths... you could potentially have 2 batteries, one that is negative grounded and one that is positive grounded. Consider two 12 volt batteries: +12V(a) -- (-12)V(b) -- GROUND -- (+12V)(c) -- (-12V)(d) If you connect (d) to either (b),(c), or Ground, one would have a 12V difference with (d) being negative. If you connect (a) to either (b), (c), or Ground, then one would have a 12V difference with (a) being positive. If you connect (a) to (d) then one would have a 24V difference with (a) still positive and (d) still being negative. One note... When Steel is given a negative potential (charge), it corrodes less than when it is given a positive potential (charge). This is the reason why negative ground is almost universally used on automobiles.

1 is for positive energy, another for negative energy and the circle one to keep it grounded.

On an automobile there is no (negative wire), the entire metal frame of the automobile is basically the negative wire. Grounded out means that a positive wire in the system has had the plastic covering somehow torn off and the bare wire is touching a part of the metal on the vehicle or a sharp piece of the vehicles metal has cut into a positive cable, either way it has "grounded out" (Bad thing), not to be confused with just plain "grounded" which is a good thing.

Find the cable that is connected directly to the frame or sub-frame of the car. If it is red, then Positive is ground; If it is black, then Negative is ground. More than likely (but not in all cases) the electrical system is Negative ground.

One terminal is the overhead wire, and the other terminal is the track, which is grounded.
