  1. Connecting to ground provides an infinite supply of electrons (or can be an infinite sink of electrons). If you ground a metal rod, and hold a negative rod near an end, negative charges will be repelled from the rod into the ground. If you then disconnect the rod from the ground, no charges can enter or leave the rod, so you're left with a net positive charge on the rod.
  2. Page 78 in the book talks about charging by induction. This section should help you out. It doesn't matter which part of the metal rod is grounded, since it's a conductor.

    APlusPhysics: Your Guide to Regents Physics Essentials is a clear and concise roadmap to the entire New York State Regents Physics curriculum, preparing students for success in their high school physics class as well as review for high marks on the Regents Physics Exam. Topics covered include pre-requisite math and trigonometry; kinematics; forces; Newton's Laws of Motion, circular motion and gravity; impulse and momentum; work, energy, and power; electrostatics; electric circuits; magnetism; waves; optics; and modern physics. Featuring more than five hundred questions from past Regents exams with worked out solutions and detailed illustrations, this book is integrated with the APlusPhysics.com website, which includes online question and answer forums, videos, animations, and supplemental problems to help you master Regents Physics essentials. Check out the online sample! (Note: Click and drag corners to turn pages.) This is a license for a digital download of the PDF version for use by one person only on up to five electronic devices.

    I would think the final pressure would be atmospheric... 🙂

    Super new - question about downloads

    Hi Robin, and welcome! Your book is available in the Community --> Downloads section (from the same page where you purchase), but I've also e-mailed a copy to you for convenience. Thanks for the support!

    Eternal Recurrence

    Kind of like a donut -- it's hard to tell the beginning and end. Well, unless you eat it, and the first bite is the beginning, and the crumbs are the sad end.

    Quite the aggressive goal. Might want to expand out that "pilot plan" a bit, as having thought through and researched the details could save a Kerbal life!
