Negatively Charged Electroscope Was the rod used positively charged or negatively charged? The rod used was negatively charged. What is the final charge on the electroscope when charged by conduction with a negatively charged rod? The final charge on the electroscope when charged by conduction with a negatively charged rod is negative. Make a note of this!
