Okay...Is it possible to charge a metal, by conduction, using only a single terminal of a battery???...Like it we touch only the negative terminal with the metal, is it going to get a negative charge??...If not, then why???

To charge it, you need to have charge moving, which is a current, right? What kind of a circuit do you need for current to flow?

When we simply touch a negatively charged metal rod with a neutral metal rod, the charge distributes itself over the both surfaces...I am asking if this is possible in my case???
