Why does the electric field inside a dielectric decrease, when it is placed in an external electric field?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 23rd Apr, 2015, 11:29: AM
When a dielectric is placed in an external electric field, it becomes polarized. The electric field due to polarization opposes the external electric field. Hence the electric field get reduce.
