Does it matter where the hot wire goes on a outlet?

The insulation should only touch the screw terminal. for standard output cables, the white neutral cable can go to one of the two silver terminals, because they are interchangeable. In addition, the black hot cable can go to one of the brass screw terminals.

Should the ground wire be hot?

The thermal reading of the soil must be superior to the neutral thermal reading. At the end of the soil trajectory vessel, i.e., where you are measuring, the soil is not connected to any source of tension. The ground wire is therefore a long test that leads to the voltage of the source.

Does a ground wire have to be connected?

Ground wires are usually connected to a ground screw or to a terminal connection to the screw in the light device, to the outlet of the container or to electrical devices or components, including the electrical connection box, or to the lead cable on the ground in light devices and other electrical devices that provide a ground connection.

Does it matter which way you wire a speaker?

Regardless of the polarity with which the speakers are connected, provided that all are connected to the same polarity. For each channel, the easiest thing is, of course, to connect the red terminal in the amplifier or receiver or anything else to the red terminal in the corresponding speaker, and from black to black.

Does it matter which wire goes where on a capacitor?

A base capacitor of two starting or running basic terminals is not sensitive to polarity. It doesn't matter which wire goes to that terminal. If it has 3 terminals, then it certainly doesn't matter which wire goes where.

Does it matter which wire goes where on an outlet?

For standard output wires, the white neutral cable can go to one of the two silver terminals as they are interchangeable. Similarly, the black hot cable can go to one of the brass screw terminals.
