## What are the two ways of charging an object?

(i) Conduction: The process of charging the uncharged object by bringing it in contact with another charged object is called charging by conduction. (ii) Induction: The process of charging the uncharged object by bringing another charged object near to it, but not touching it, is called charging by induction.

## How can an object become electrically charged?

An electrical charge is created when electrons are transferred to or removed from an object. Because electrons have a negative charge, when they are added to an object, it becomes negatively charged. When electrons are removed from an object, it becomes positively charged.

## How do you tell if an object is positively or negatively charged?

Take an object with a known charge, either positive or negative, and bring it close to the rod. If the known charged object is positive and it is repelled from the rod, the rod is charged positive. If the positively charged object is attracted to the rod, the rod is negatively charged.

## What happens to the charge lost by an object?

Whenever electrons are transferred between objects, neutral matter becomes charged. This occurs even with individual atoms. When an atom loses electrons, it becomes a positively charged ion, or cation. When an atom gains electrons, it becomes a negative charged ion, or anion.

## What happens when a charged object touches an uncharged object?

By bringing a charged object into contact with an uncharged object, some electrons will migrate to even out the charge on both objects. Charging by conduction gives the previously uncharged object a permanent charge. An uncharged object can also be charged using a method called charging by induction.

## When an object has more negative charge than positive charge the object is called?

Positive Charge. When an object has more positive charges than negative charges, its overall charge is this. Negative Charge. When an object has more negative charges than positive charges, its overall charge is this. Neutral charge.

## Is the process of removing excess charges on an object?

Grounding is the process of removing the excess charge on an object by means of the transfer of electrons between it and another object of substantial size. When a charged object is grounded, the excess charge is balanced by the transfer of electrons between the charged object and a ground.

## Can two metallic balls having same kind of charge attract each other?

No two balls carrying the same charge will never attract each other.
