Net force on charges in a conductor Elec trons in a c onduc tor are more or les s free to move within the c onduc tor. As a res ult elec trons in a c onduc tor plac ed in an elec tric field (with no magnetic field pres ent) will move until the elec tic field that they generate ins ide the c onduc tor c anc els the applied field (i.e., until the net internal elec tric field equals z ero). In general, the c harges in a c onduc tor move until the net forc e on them is z ero. This happens almos t ins tantaneous ly in a good c onduc tor. In this problem, there is no ex ternal elec tric field but there is a forc e on the elec trons due to the applied magnetic field. The elec trons will thus move in s uc h a way as to c reate an elec tric field that will c anc el the magnetic forc e on them (leaving a net forc e of z ero on the elec trons ). Hin t 2.
