Question about Electrical Supplies
Add a comment and say what wires you have in case following answer misses your mark.
As a general rule, there is one cable that comes from breaker box.
There is another cable that goes to light fixture.
Each cable has 1 Black, 1 White and 1 Bare ground.
So you have 2 Blacks, 2 Whites and 2 Grounds.
White wires twist together and are covered by wire nut.
Black wires each connect to a different brass-colored screw on light switch. In any order.
Bare ground wires connect to green screw.
If light fixture has wires, then black goes to black and white to white, and ground to ground.
If light fixture has screws, then black goes to brass screw, white to silver screw, and ground to green screw.
