Wiring-in Range Hood

I am installing a new range hood. I had an electrician do the wiring thru the wall. There are 3 wires from the wall: bare copper, black, and white. There are 3 on the hood: 2 whites and one black. I'm assuming the bare copper is a ground--correct? How do I know which wires connect to which? The range hood instructions simply tell me to wire according to local code. Not much help at all. Thanks in advance! kg

I assume you mean it is a cable with white, black & ground?
Just go color for color. The two whites go to the one white from the wall. The ground gets looped under the green screw, black to black.
Be sure to use a proper connector on the cable coming out of the wall.

Wow, thanks for the speedy reply! Yes, it is a cable w/ white, black and ground. Just wondering, why do I hook 2 whites from the hood to one white from the wall? The rest makes sense to me. thank you so very much!!

Not sure why the separate the neutrals in the hood. Not cost effective to splice a single wire on I guess.
