Q. 144.6( 5 Votes )

The aluminum strips in an electroscope as shown in fig. 15.1 are replaced by plastic strips and a charged body is brought in contact with the metal clip. What will happen?


Answer :

If aluminum (metal) strips in an electroscope are replaced by plastic strips, the strips won’t spread out. As a result, we cannot test whether the object is carrying a charge or not.

Note: Electric charge can be transferred from a charged object to another only through a metal conductor.
