Explain the difference between charging by induction and charging by contact. Include details of how the charging occurs.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Charging by conduction is a method of charging any neutral conductor by making it in actual contact with a charged conductor; it is often called as charging by contact.

Suppose a charged metallic conductor is made in contact with a neutral conductor with the help of...
