Question

What happens when a negatively charged body is connected to the ground?
  1. Earth supplies protons to neutralise the body.
  2. Earth takes excess electrons from the body to neutralize it.
  3. The body induces negative charges in Earth. 
  4. Nothing happens and the body remains the same.


Solution

The correct option is B Earth takes excess electrons from the body to neutralize it.
The charge density is always more in the body than in Earth. Since the body is negatively charged, electrons flow from the body to Earth leaving the body neutral. This process is also called earthing.
