Yes.....but that is not "common grounding" with the rad. In a corrosion cell, electron flow only travels through the metallic path. It can go through the electrolyte, but in this case it wouldnt. Unless you dump salt or something in the electrolyte.

The anhydrous form is a pale green or gray-white powder, whereas the pentahydrate (CuSO45H2O), the most commonly encountered salt, is bright blue. Copper sulfate exothermically dissolves in water to give the aquo complex [Cu(H2O)6]2+, which has octahedral molecular geometry and is paramagnetic. Other names for copper(II) sulfate are "blue vitriol" and "bluestone".[1]


electrolyte is conductive for electrons flow

In previous post, electrons are being referred to as in current flow.

Golly. I had only made one comment about the coolant path being an avenue for conductivity and the discussion takes off. :)
