why holes do not exist in conductor..??

Expert Answer:

A good conductor like a metal wire has a sea of loosely bound free moving electrons that will immediately fill the hole faster than you can comprehend the action. Only in semiconductors, where the crystalline structure of the silicon binds the electrons, and very small amounts of dopants can cause a deficiency of electrons to form holes, is it possible for them to exist.
