The previous version of this video had an error in it that was too big to fix with an annotation, and so it was removed, fixed, enhanced and reuploaded. The error was a silly one on my part where I had the fault go to ground, silly because I should have realized that wasn’t what happens since I knew about the ground being connected to the neutral bar in the breaker panel. A big thanks to all who brought it up in the comments to the previous version.

Thanks to Matthias Wandel ( for allowing me to photograph his breaker panel and thanks to Todd Harrison ( for checking over this new version of the video before I released it.
