Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Welcome to ITKE, KAMUGiSHA! Earthing pertains to the circuitry that connects different parts of the electrical circuit to the ground.

For a circuit breaker, it’s an electrical switch that’s designed to protect the circuit from damage (either by an overload or short circuit).
