1.Will a charge be induced on a plastic-made object if a charged metal is put near it? 2.Is the sharing of charge between two conductor(placed on a insulator) is considered as a current? I think charge can be induced similar to the way in which charged is induced in water. But, I am not sure whether their body molecular size affect this characteristic. For the second one, I am not sure as it seems to me that no complete circuit is present.
