“Grounding” is a term used rather exclusively in North American to
indicate a direct or indirect connection to the planet Earth or to some
conducting body that serves in place of the Earth.
Or, "Grounding": A conducting connection, whether intentional or accidental,

Wires carrying current always have inherent resistance, or impedance,
to current flow. Voltage drop is defined as the amount of voltage loss that
occurs through all or part of a circuit due to impedance. (see below image)
