Think of the black line as an artery, bringing fresh electricity from the electric company where as the white line is the vein designed to return it to the electric company after it's passed through your device energizing it.
The green line is the earth bonded, ground line.ough there are a great many grounding systems in houses that are *NOT* properly set up and the fact that you see a green wire does not mean that it's safely grounded.
What the green wire does is provide an emergency backup way for the electricity to "get out" into the earth should any part of your electrical system short. And make no mistake, this form of grounding is designed to save the wires in your house from burning during an electrical short and is not designed to save any kind of equipment plugged into it - that's what surge arrestors are for.12For the best answers, search on this site https://shorturl/awWOO
