Edit: Electrostatics/Electroscope Correct Answers Feedback I have the multiple choice part of my electrostatics test back and I'll be sure to update the other thread once I get that part up 1.*When electrons are transferred from one object to another, positive and negative charges are _____. "created", "reversed", "separated", "canceled" I put "separated" but his answer is "created".. I thought energy is neither made nor destroyed.. Hmm.. And by electrons transferring from one object to another, don't "neutral" objects have a certain # of electrons and protons.. eventually one object has more electrons, one has more protons if they're transferring.. Or maybe.. A "created" charge doesn't mean new protons/electrons, but that 2 neutral objects have suddenly "earned" a positive or negative charge, therefore, "created"? 2.*What isn't true about a charged object? I'm sure his answer is right, but just to make sure.. If it's not true "that electrons always flow from negative to positive".. http://www.physics.miami.edu/~zuo/class/fall_05/supplement/Figure21_26.jpg Basing of that pic, would it be true that "positive goes to negative"? But from the electroscope things we did, I thought protons were too "heavy" and only electrons moved.. 3.*When neutral objects are rubbed together, there is a transfer of electrons. The resultant net charges on the two materials are His answer is "unlike and equal". I kind of get it now.. If an object A loses 50 electrons to object B.. Object B becomes -50 ?coulombs? [correct term here?] and object A becomes +50.. So yeah, basically, I'd like to know the correct terminology here. ===== ^&$*A conductor which is connected to a negatively charged electroscope is touched with a glass rod having a positive charge. Which will occur? We have diagrams for these problems. The correct diagram is a neutral diagram.. *A rubber rod becomes negatively charged when rubbed with fur. After rubbing the rubber rod, the fur is touched to an initially uncharged electroscope.. Which will occur? The answer is a positive electroscope with the leaves separating because of positives.. Umm..? I'm pretty sure that the answer should be a negative electroscope, with separating leaves as a result of the negatives.. *An insulator which is connected to a positively charged electroscope is touched with a negatively charged rod. What will happen?His answer is a positive electroscope with dividing positive leaves.. If ^&$ is neutral.. Isn't this just the exact same thing, kind of? Thanks == Yellow parts understood now, still up for reference.
