The correct answer to this question is B, Induction. This occurs when movement is used to create electricity. This is different from when electricity creates movement. For induction to occur, the circuit must have alternating current.

When it does, it flows through and creates another current in another circuit. This can occur by just placing them with each other. Induction is a principle part of many things around us every day.

For example, if one has a rice cooker in their kitchen, they are cooking with induction. Another example that most people already have in their homes are electric toothbrushes that are rechargeable.

In science, friction is known the motion when two things are rubbed together. It creates heat usually. Induction is when the electrical charge occurs due to an electrical conductor. Convection occurs with heat. The heat during convection moves due to the liquid or gas that has the heated areas. Conduction also deals with the movement of heat. However, these parts are usually solid because they don’t move.

All of these terms have something in common and this is that they all have to do with heat. They either create heat or move heat in some form or fashion. The method that is involved when charges in an uncharged metal object are rearranged without direct contact with the charged object would be through induction.
