How do you know? 7) Mr. G originally thought electrostatics was similar to magnetism. However, when a charge was brought near either end of the magnet, the magnet was attracted to the charge. Why did this happen? 1) How do electrons behave in a conductor? 2) How do electrons behave in an insulator? 3) A negative charge is place on a large metal sphere. How will the negative charges behave? Where will they go? WHY???? Draw a picture of your explanation. How would you answer the same questions for an insulator? 4) A negative charge is brought near a metal sphere, but does not touch. How will the charges in the sphere behave? Where will they go? WHY?????? Draw a picture of your explanation. 5) A small spherical object hangs vertically from a string. A negatively charged rod is brought near the object and the object is attracted to the rod. When the object touches the rod, it is suddenly repelled. Is the object on the string an insulator or a conductor? How do you know? 6) A small spherical object hangs vertically from a string. A negatively charged rod is brought near the object and the object is attracted to the rod. When the object touches the rod, the rod and object stick together. Is the object on the string an insulator or a conductor? How do you know? 7) Mr. G originally thought electrostatics was similar to magnetism. However, when a charge was brought near either end of the magnet, the magnet was attracted to the charge. Why did this happen?
