Textbook Problem

A glass object receives a positive charge of +3 nC by rubbing it with a silk cloth. In the rubbing process, have protons been added to the object or have electrons been removed from it?

To determine
The effect of rubbing a silk cloth on a glass object.

Answer
When the silk cloth is rubbed against the glass object, electrons have been removed from it.

Explanation

Electrostatic induction refers to the phenomena of distribution of charge in a material due to the interaction with other charges.

When the silk cloth is rubbed against the glass object, it gets positively charged. The interpretation is that, the silk cloth loses electrons to the glass object. There is an imbalance of charge among the two objects. The positive charge on the glass object signifies the shortage of electrons.

Conclusion: When the silk cloth is rubbed against the glass object, electrons have been removed from it
