ground resistance

ground resistance

[′grau̇nd ri‚zis·təns]
(electricity)
Opposition of the earth to the flow of current through it; its value depends on the nature and moisture content of the soil, on the material, composition, and nature of connections to the earth, and on the electrolytic action present.
