The connection of any part an electric conductor with the ground; specif., the connection of a telegraph line with the ground through a fault or otherwise.
To hide, or cause to hide, in the earth; to chase into a burrow or den.

Electrical connection to complete a circuit. Also called Ground.
Used, in connection with the radio apparatus carried by an aeroplane, to describe the metallic portions of an airframe which are connected by bonding wires to give electrical continuity and so to serve the purpose of an "earth".
One of the 4 classical elements, representing the traits of sensuality, concreteness, practicality and an orientation towards the material plane. The earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn.
A place where a fox goes to ground for protection, but usually a place where foxes live regularly - a fox den.
literally just that, or a connection from a circuit to the earth - also called ground. It is useful because the earth can be regarded as a good conductor, which provides a convenient path for the completion of many circuits. Connection is usually made through a wire from the circuit or apparatus to the earth; such a connection is always available through the earth pin of a standard power point. (See also earth potential.)
Spelled with a lower-case "e," earth refers to the magnetically charged ground, and to the lowest plane of movement (as in moving to and connecting with the earth).
One of the five elements and represented by the Northeast, Southwest and center of the Bagua. Its related numbers are two, five and eight .Material things and earthly affairs are influenced by earth qi. Earth is also the great transformer of qi often serving as a transition between two other elements. Its colors are earth tones, yellows, or tans. Its movement is downward and its shape is rectangular or square. Earth is at the center of the eight trigrams in the Lo shu square and Bagua, and represents balance center and grounding.
also known as ground - commonly used to describe the chassis and other materials that provide a return path for power supplies and signals within any electronic device
also known as ground - a protective connection from wall outlet to equipment chassis to conduct fault currents away from human contact
the solid part of the earth's surface; "the plane turned away from the sea and moved back over land"; "the earth shook for several minutes"; "he dropped the logs on the ground"

That portion of the earth's crust sufficiently below the surface to act as an infinite sink or source for electric charge. Earth is considered the universal ground or reference zero potential level.
An electrical connection to the earth, which represents 0 volts or 'ground potential' by way of a metal or conductive rod.
Where a fox goes to ground for safety, usually a den or kennel.
An electrical connection to the earth frequently using a grid or rod(s). See also Ground
An electrical connection to the earth (ground) or a terminal to which the connection is made.
GROUND A low impedance path to earth for the purpose of discharging lightning, static, and radiated energy, and to maintain the main service entrance at earth potential. EARTHING ELECTRODE A grounding electrode, water pipe, or building steel, or some combination of these, used for establishing a building’s earth ground.
ground. Can mean a connection to the earth itself or the negative lead tot the the chassis or any point to zero voltage. See also Ground plane.
Sometimes called ground, earth is the zero reference point for electrical circuits including the mains electricity supply.
The fourth element of the alchemical tradition. Earth is the essence of grounding and stability, the element of the West and the nature of balance.
One of the four basic elements. The earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.
