Q. 284.8( 8 Votes )

If the metal clip used in the electroscope is replaced by an ebonite rod and a charged body is brought in contact with it, will there be any effect on the aluminum strips? Explain.

Answer :

No, there will not be any effect on aluminum strips because:

i. Ebonite rod is an insulator. It does not carry a charge at all.


ii. Therefore, the charged body which is brought in contact with the ebonite rod, will not transfer charges to the ebonite rod.


iii. As a result, there will be no charge on the aluminum strips.


iv. Hence, no repulsion of the aluminium strips will occur.
