if you charge a rubber rod with a piece of fur and bring the rubber rod close to the top of the gold-leaf electroscope, is it induction or polarization?

  1. It is induction
    Induction also will work on an insulator with no net charge on the object by pulling the like charges toward and repelling the unlike charges. That sort of induction is called polarization.
