is a wall a conductor?

• is a wall a conductor? -

That depends upon what it is made of.

• is a wall a conductor? -

Well it was a lab and the balloon was a insulator with a negative charge it was attracted to the wall so does that mean the wall is a insulator or conductor

• is a wall a conductor? -

On an insulating wall, the negatively charged balloon will induce a polarization in the wall that will attract it to the surface.

If the wall were conducting, the balloon's charge would eventually leak to ground. There would be an initial attraction but it would not last.

For a while, the balloon would be attracted to either a conducting or insulating wall

• is a wall a conductor? -

Yes

• is a wall a conductor? -

A wall is insulator
