The earth resistance (R) has three basic components :
R
A
-
 The resistance of the ground electrode itself and theconnections to the electrode
R
B
- The contact resistance of the surrounding earth to theelectrode
R
C
- The resistance of the surrounding body of earth aroundthe ground electrode
 
R = R
