Explain how a bad circuit ground can affect a sensors reference voltage.

To determine

The effect of bad circuit ground.

Explanation

A bad ground can cause an increase in the reference voltage to a sensor. It can be checked by running a voltage drop test. If a bad circuit ground is found, it will reflect on the voltmeter.

A bad ground can bring a change in the voltage. It can be understood from the below mentioned points:

  1. The reference voltage is assumed as 5volts.
  2. The reference voltage becomes higher if there is a defect in the grounding...
