Methods. There are three ways to charge an object: friction, conduction and induction. Friction involves rubbing on material with another, resulting in electrons moving from one surface to another.
In this way, how does an object become charged?
Positive and negative charges. Objects can be positively charged, negatively charged or neutral (no charge). A substance that gains electrons becomes negatively charged, while a substance that loses electrons becomes positively charged. Atoms or molecules that become charged are ions.
What does it mean for an object to be charged?
When that happens,the atom is in a normal or neutral state. An entire atom becomes electrically charged when the number of electrons or protons stops being equal. The "extra" electron or proton isn't balanced by something inside the atom anymore and begins to be attracted to the protons or electrons in other atoms.
