Description

  • Inside a conductor, electrostatic field is zero
  • At the surface of a charged conductor, electrostatic field must be normal to the surface at every point
  • The interior of a conductor can have no excess charge in the static situation
  • Electrostatic potential is constant throughout the volume of the conductor and has the same value (as inside) on its surface
  • Electric field at the surface of a charged conductor
  • Electrostatic shielding
