Question

Describe the method of charging a conductor by induction.

Solution

INDUCTION: “Charging an uncharged conductor by bringing a charged conductor near it without touching is called INDUCTION

Place uncharged conductor B near +vely charged conductor A nearer end of B has -vely charged electrons attracted towards +vely protons remain on farther end of B.
Hence, nearer end of B is charged oppositely i.e. negative. We can test it by pith ball electroscope. On removing charged body A away from B, The body B becomes neutral due to protons and electron in B are equal and have opposite charge.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
