why electric field inside conductor is zero

Asked by  | 6th May, 2008, 03:35: PM

Expert Answer:

Charges are not present inside the conductor, they are present on the surface of a conductor.

So applying Gauss law you can say that the electric field will be zero as the Gaussian surface encloses no charge.
