1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider a finite,uncharged,insulated conductor placed near a finite positively charged conductor.The uncharged body must have a potential A)less than the charged conductor and more than at infinity B)more than the charged conductor and less than at infinity C)more than the charged conductor and more than at infinity D)less than the charged conductor and less than at infinity 2. Relevant equations None,theoretical question.. 3. The attempt at a solution I just took a case of two spherical capacitors,first one being uncharged and second one charged (say positively charged).If the second sphere is brought near the first one,it induces a negative charge on one side of the sphere and a corresponding positive charge on the other side of the sphere.The charge distribution may not be uniform,but is is such that the field inside the conductor becomes zero. Now,if we calculate the potential of the sphere,it will still turn out to be zero,right? (K × total charge/common distance)...and the potential at infinity is zero as well..hence,my problem.
