An isolated metal sphere is heated to a high temperature. Will it become positively charged due to thermionic emission?
When an isolated metal sphere is heated to high temperature it will give enough kinetic energy to electrons and hence will the surface. This will decrease the number of electrons on the surface of metal sphere. And due this reason the sphere will become positively charged.
