Question: I have to splice an adapter cord to a black and white copper electrical wire. I know the black is hot and the white is neutral. How do I tell which of the wires on the adapter cord to hook to which of the black and white copper wires. The adapter cord is basically a standard gray cord with two wires running through it (like you have on lamps, clocks, etc). No real color marking except I noticed that one of the wires does have gray lines along the outside plastic casing.
Additional Comments: Thanks. Lots of useful stuff.
