Electrostatic induction electrification:
This electrification process is based entirely on the principle of attraction and repulsion, as electrification occurs only with the approximation of an electrified body (inductor) to a neutral body (induced). The process is divided into three steps:
- First an electrified rod is approached from an initially neutral conductor, by the principle of attraction and repulsion, the free electrons of the armature are attracted / repelled depending on the signal of the inductor charge.
- The next step is to ground the armature, still in the presence of the inductor.
- The armature shuts off, causing its only charge to be the opposite signal to the inductor.
Then the inductor can be removed from the vicinity and the armature will be electrically signaled opposite the inductor charge and the loads are distributed throughout the body.
