Identical conductive sphere B is fixed by an insulating rod. Both are initially electrically neutral. An amount Q of positive charge is then transferred from B to A (leaving B with an amount Q of negative charge). When A is brought close to B, 1.A swings toward B (as shown). 2.A swings away from B (not shown). 3.A hangs straight down (not shown, no interaction). B A +Q −Q−Q + + + + −− − − + + + + −− −−
