An inflated balloon is charged by rubbing with fur. Will it stick readily to a conducting wall or to an insulating wall?

Expert Answer:

It will stick readily to the conducting wall. It induces an equal amount of charge on the conducting wall and a lesser charge on insulating wall. Thus, a large force of attraction acts between the balloon and the conducting wall.
