Correct ground wiring for a light?
I just hung a new bathroom fixture and was wondering if I hooked up the ground correctly. The fixture has a ground wire. Also supplied was a ground screw on the base of the fixture (mounts to the wall) and a ground screw on the support (that holds the threaded rod) which is secured to the electrical box.
My home wiring has a ground that terminates on the electrical box. I secured the mount
and hooked up the ground wire of the fixture to the ground screw on the base of the fixture. I did not bother to run a ground from the box to the fixture since I figured it would be grounded when I secured the light to the box.
I measured the resistance of the fixture to the ground wire and it was less than half an ohm (.4 to be specific). Is this acceptable? Sorry if its confusing.
