CBSE Class 12-science Answered

Why solid conductors conduct electricity when placed in an electric field?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 04 Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
Expert Answer

In solid conductors, free charges move randomly in all direction due to thermal agitation, and their net effect becomes zero. So, there will be no electric current inside the conductor. When electric field is applied, the electrons move in opposite direction to that of electric field and constitute the current.
