why field iside aconductor is zero? explain

Answers : (1)


Dear sanket,

The electric field within the conductor is NOT zero! You are confusing the idea that the electric field within a conductor under "static conditions" is zero with a non static situation where current is flowing and where the EMF is not zero!
You are correct! There could be NO current if there were zero electric field!
