Question about grounding and induction charging

  • #1
Hello, I have a question that I hope someone here can help me with. In all of the descriptions about induction charging and grounding, the incoming negative charge is depicted as being applied to one side of a neutral, uncharged object. If I understand correctly, according to the law of repulsion-attraction, the electrons in the neutral object move to the side opposite the incoming negative charge. Grounding the neutral object will allow those electrons to discharge into the ground. My question is this: If the ground wire is on the same side of the incoming negative charge, and the electrons are now on the opposite side of the neutral object, is the ground going to be effective?
