Question

Can two bodies of like charge attract each other?


Solution

Two similar point charges can never attract each other.

In the above figure, we see when the first charge is very large as compared to the second, we find the positive charges are displaced at the opposite end and negative charges are concentrated on the end nearer to the first charge. As negative charges come nearer due to electrostatic induction there occurs attraction between the charges.
