Siemens Circuit Breaker


Hi guys, I have a very basic question for you.

I've installed/replaced breakers in electrical panels a few times now. However, I'm curious what the two screws on the circuit breaker are?

For instance, the bronze is where we connect the hot wire. However, what is the second silver screw for?
