### Question

I've answered this but am not sure how right I am. I'd appreciate any help.

A metal fish-shaped object of length 10 cm has a hollow space inside of it. It is initially electrically neutral. A point charge of magnitude q is placed 10 cm away from the fishs head.

a. Is there any net charge induced on the fish?
b. Are any regions of the metal fish charged at all?
c. Is the inner surface of the hollow space inside the metal fish charged?
d. Will the metal fish experience an electric force from the nearby charge?

a. No, the electrons or protons (determined by the point charge) will move away from the closes point to the point charge
b. Yes, te region closes to the point charge will be charged opposite of the point charge
c. No
d. Yes
