Ok, I'm confused about items that get charged. If a metal object recieves a positive charge. The positive charge polarizes the metal object and sucks some electrons away from it right? (Does it suck all of the electrons away or what)? Because - and + attract and I would assume only the electrons get transfered. Can Positive charges get transferred from one object to the other? Are positive charges protons? So If you charge a metal object with a negative charge. It still polarizes the metal object and attracts the closer postive charges. Therefore does the electrons jump onto the metal object? I'm just confused with which one (positive or negative charges) get transferred to the other object (neutral, I would assume).
