Properties of conductors Properties of conductors Inside a conductor in electrostatic equilibrium , the electric field is ZERO . Why? Because if the field is not zero, then charges inside the conductor would be moving. SO: charges in a conductor redistribute themselves wherever they are needed to make the field inside the conductor ZERO. Excess charges are always on the surface of the conductors.

Gauss’ Law: Example Gauss’ Law: Example A spherical conducting shell has an excess charge of +10 C. A point charge of - 15 C is located at center of the sphere. Use Gauss’ Law to calculate the charge on inner and outer surface of sphere (a) Inner: +15 C; outer: 0 (b) Inner: 0; outer: +10 C (c) Inner: +15 C; outer: -5 C -15 C R 1
Gauss’ Law: Example Gauss’ Law: Example Inside a conductor, E = 0 under static equilibrium! Otherwise electrons would keep moving!
