I was reading through the principle of a capacitor and I am unable to understand one of the statements. My textbook says the following-
Consider an insulated metal plate A. Let it be connected to a voltage source and charged to a maximum. Now an uncharged plate B is brought near it. Due to electrostatic induction negative charge is introduced on the left face and positive charge on the right face.
2. Homework Equations
All electrostatics related formulas.
The Attempt at a Solution
Since plate A is connected to a voltage source, electrons travel from the source to the plate till both are at equal potential. Since plate A has a negative charge it should attract positive charge and thus induce positive charge on the left face and negative on the right of plate B. Where am I wrong?
