how to identify a negative and positive wire??

i have a new light i will be installing in the ceiling. ive got everything i need however the new light does not have any thing on the wire that identifies it as positive or negative. the only thing it has is one side has some writing on it but nothing that says positive or negative.

any ideas?

It all depends on how its wired. Can you see the original source of these wires ? THeres no such thing as the wire it self being positive type, or negative type, its just what its plugged into

get an appliance, remove one battery, hook up the wires in both combinations and see which way works.
Might work, I'm pretty tired. Might just blow out your TV remote

it's probably black/white/copper. black is negative, white is positive, copper is ground.

Ohh, you are installing it. Never read that. Shouldnt matter, as long as the light doesnt specify to hook + to + or somthing. I doubt the light has a + or -

does it matter if i am standing on a conveyor belt while doing this or will it change the atomic properties of said light?

You should be fine with the convayer belt, at least in terms of the light. its the darks atomic property's that you'll have to watch out for. They're prone to make you stub your toe.



Fun fact: for rubber to be sufficient insulation for a lightning bolt it would have to be over a kilometer thick.

Hooking up the wires either way will work, since you say both are white, and you are concerned about putting it in wrong, get a continuity tester and find the wire that connects to the center contact on the bulb socket, this should be connected to the hot (black) wire. Connect the wire connected to the outer contact of the socket to the white (neutral) wire.
