when i did my apprentaship for a pub refurbing company i was always tripping the rcd when cutting through N - E. is this tripping because of touch voltage in the earth?

my boss who taught me the little i know some years back told me that it was cos of some juice in the neutral. but given how an rcd works it must be juice in the earth?

if main equipotential bonding is not up to scratch, can this effect this "touch voltage" or other types of bonding.

where does this voltage come from, is it form emf's etc? induced voltage and all that?

just very curious about all this type of thing, i dont fully understand it and would like too!!!

wondering if diabetic equations come into it anywhere! lol
