Hot water heater revisited

Thanks for info about 10-2 on water heater... next concern... do both black and red wires go into a 30 amp double breaker, or does the red wire go to the neutral bar... having trouble in my mind of knowing how this circuit is completed... appreciate your help

If you are using 10/3 then the red and black will terminate on the breaker and at the water heater. The white wire needs to be capped on both ends an folded back out of the way. You can use wire-nuts to cap the white wire.
