Ac electrical wiring. When wiring to supply power you are creating an electrical circuit. The black wire will never be used for neutral or grounding purposes. Standard line voltage wiring in the united states is done with plastic sheathed cables which usually have three conductors. A continuous circuit consists of a hot wire a neutral wire and a ground.
The ground wire is meant to dispel any extra charge using the earth as the dispeller. So while this dc grounding wire may seem redundant it is vital. Electricity flows through the hot wire to a device or power receptacle and back through the neutral wire.

In the united states ac wires are color coded for safety. Because wiring is sized to handle a given amperage it follows that the wiring for a 120 volt ac circuit will be much smaller than that for a 12 volt dc circuit. Designed for ac repair technicians. Two of the conductors in nmb cable are covered with plastic insulation one white the other black.
The black wire is always going to be the hot wire holding electricity. Also details how the parts work and how the electrical works.
