Expert Answer:

 Four important properties are:

  1. The Net electric field inside the conductor is zero
  2. Electric charge always resides on the outer surface of the conductor only.
  3. Net electric charge inside the conductor is zero
  4. Just outside the surface of a conductor, the electric field is perpendicular to the surface at each point.
