Dielectric constant

Asked by arvind95 | 15th Dec, 2012, 09:53: PM

Expert Answer:

Since in conductors, free electrons are present
so to an applied electric field, they balance the induced charge on the surface with electrons and hence no field is present inside.
thus they are not polarized. and hence their dielectric constant is infinite.
