Charging by Induction
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Describe the steps in charging a single object by induction (using grounding) if the charging object is positive.
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
We've had to do explanations similar to this before during class; however, never with a positively charged object. Would someone mind checking to make sure I've got the steps right? Thanks.
Place the positively charged object near the neutral object but ensure that they do not touch. Ground the neutral object by placing a finger on the positive side (side opposite the charging object); this will allow electrons to flow from the ground into the neutral object. Remove you finger from the object and then remove the charging object. The "neutral" object has now been negatively charged by induction.
