Faraday's Displacement Flux Experiment

  1. Jul 18, 2013 #1
    Faraday's Displacement Flux Experiment:
    I am having trouble understanding the experiment.


    1) Inner sphere is charged with +Q
    2) Outer sphere is grounded.
    3) Charged of the outer sphere is found to be -Q.
    4) Conclusion: displacement flux makes outer sphere charged with -Q.

    I don't understand the grounding step and conclusion.
    Can any body explain the expremient more clearly?
    Thank you...

    Reason of the induceed charge -Q on the outer sphere?
