(c) When the spheres are close to each other, the excess negative charges on each sphere repel, as shown in Fig- ure 17.3c. Figure 17.3 Reflect: We will learn later in the chapter that the excess charge on a conductor is on the surface of the conductor. 17.4. Set Up: Unlike charges attract and in a conductor the excess charge is free to move. Solve: Negative charge in the earth is pulled to the surface beneath the charged cloud, as sketched in Figure 17.4. Figure 17.4 17.5. Set Up: The charge of one electron is Solve: (a) (b) 17.6. Set Up: The total charge is the number if ions times the charge of each. Solve: 17.7. Set Up: Charge conservation requires that the total charge Q of the reactants equals the total charge of the products. and has charge and each have charge Solve: (a) reactants: products Could not occur. (b) reactants: products Could occur. (c) reactants: products Could not occur. (d)
