When a positively charged ball is brought near a neutral conductor(a light metal ball), will the metal ball be attracted towards the charged ball?
This is electrostatic induction.
The Attempt at a Solution
Like a charged rod can attract the paper(insulation) by the polarization of atoms.
So similarly, I think the lots of electrons will move to one side of metal ball and the whole metal ball will be attracted to the +ve charged ball. The attractive force is even greater than the insulator like plastic ball.
