2 Electric Potential: Charged Conductor Consider two points ( A and B ) on the surface of the charged conductor E is always perpendicular to the displacement d s Therefore, E · d s = 0 Therefore, the potential difference between A and B is also zero!!!!
3 Electric Potential: Charged Conductor The potential difference between A and B is zero!!!! Therefore V is constant everywhere on the surface of a charged conductor in equilibrium Δ V = 0 between any two points on the surface The surface of any charged conductor is an equipotential surface Because the electric field is zero inside the conductor, the electric potential is constant everywhere inside the conductor and equal to the value at the surface
