  1. And the correct answer is that the charge distribution will look like this.
  2. The positive charge will attract the negatives over to this side
  3. but this negative has to come from somewhere.
  4. Well, previously they were hanging out positive charges over here.
  5. Once they leave those positive charges, that leans a deficit of electrons on this side,
  6. and so this left side becomes positively charge as the right side becomes negatively charge.
  7. What we have just discovered is the phenomenon known as polarization,
  8. and that's what we call when charges separate--positive on one side and negatives on the other.
