Question: suppose you have a glass tube with metal plates at...

Question details

Suppose you have a glass tube with metal plates at the ends, which are connected to wires leading outside the tube. The air has been removed from the interior of the tube leaving a very good vacuum. There is a positively charged particle initially sitting at rest between the two plates. See the accurate diagram below. A positively charged rod is brought in contact with the left hand wire. What, if anything, happens to the charged particle? Explain your answer completely. Two negatively charged rods with equal charge are simultaneously touched to the two wires at the end of the tube. What, if anything, will happen to the charged particle? Explain.
