A sexond smaller metal sphere was positioned near the van de Graff machine. THe sphere was grounded. Did this snaller sphere become charged? How and why? was the interaction between the two spheres attractive or repulsive? Explain.

Yes the smaller sphere was charged because this smaller sphere is grounded so that it has a neutral charge which is attracted to the negatively charged van de Graaff machine. The interaction is attractive because they are composed of two different charges.

Is this correct?
