Faraday's Displacement Flux Experiment

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

    http://books.google.com.tr/books?id=r_rDg_E97MEC&pg=SA16-PA10&lpg=SA16-PA10&dq=displacement+flux+experiment&source=bl&ots=fWpfEu2G5f&sig=aNaYtkIfPmRo1CInc3-9noFQxkY&hl=tr&sa=X&ei=gX7nUeD4BJCMswbx1oCgAQ&ved=0CDkQ6AEwAw

    Summary:
    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?
