Hi, Any help on this would be appreciated. 1. If you bring a positively charged insulator near one of two metallic spheres that are in contact and then separate the spheres, what charge will the sphere further away from the insulator have? 2. Relevant equations - none 3. I believe the answer to this would be that the spheres remain uncharged because the insulator did not attract any electrons from sphere it was closer to. If for some reason the insulator did remove electrons from the sphere, it would become positively charged and when separated from the other sphere, it would pull electrons from it. So I guess my answer would be either no charge or positively charged. Does anyone understand this question better? Thank You.
