### The process of charging a conductor by bringing it near another charged object and then grounding the conductor is called

• A.

A. contact charging.

• B.

B. Polarization

• C.

C. induction.

• D.

D. neutralization.

C. C. induction.
Explanation
The process described in the question involves bringing a conductor near a charged object and then grounding the conductor. This is known as induction. During induction, the charged object induces a separation of charges in the conductor, causing one side to become positively charged and the other side to become negatively charged. Grounding the conductor allows the excess charges to flow into the ground, resulting in a neutral conductor. Therefore, the correct answer is c. induction.

### Both insulators and conductors can be charged by

• A.

A. grounding.

• B.

B. polarization.

• C.

C. induction.

• D.

D. contact.

D. D. contact.
Explanation
Insulators and conductors can both be charged by contact. When a charged object comes into contact with an insulator or a conductor, the charges from the object can transfer to the material through the process of conduction. This allows the insulator or conductor to become charged. Therefore, contact is a method that can be used to charge both insulators and conductors.

### Conductors can be charged by _______________, while insulators cannot.

• A.

A. Grounding

• B.

B. Polarization

• C.

C. Induction

• D.

D. Contact

C. C. Induction
Explanation
Insulators cannot be charged because they do not allow the flow of electrons. Conductors, on the other hand, can be charged through induction. Induction occurs when a charged object is brought near a conductor, causing the charges in the conductor to redistribute. This redistribution of charges creates an induced charge on the conductor, allowing it to become charged. Grounding, polarization, and contact can also lead to the charging of conductors, but induction specifically refers to the process of charging a conductor by bringing a charged object near it.

### If a positively charged glass rod is used to charge a metal bar by induction, the charge on the bar

• A.

A. will be equal in magnitude to the charge on the glass rod.

• B.

B. must be negative.

• C.

C. must be positive.

• D.

D. will be greater in magnitude than the charge on the glass rod.

B. B. must be negative.
Explanation
When a positively charged glass rod is used to charge a metal bar by induction, the charge on the bar must be negative. This is because when the positively charged rod is brought near the metal bar, it repels the positive charges in the metal, causing them to move away. This leaves the metal bar with an excess of negative charges, resulting in a negative charge on the bar. Therefore, the charge on the bar must be negative.

• A.

A. negative; positive

• B.

B. induced; residual

• C.

C. positive; negative

• D.

D. residual; induced
