```				   Why for a metal i.e, conductor dielectri constant is infinity ?
I think such a way that k=Eo/E. So in side a conductor or a metal E=0. So K=0. But E is not 0 all over the conductor i mean from the surface to outer medium.
Am i correct to think in such a way ? What's the correct reason ?

```										Dear student,

The dielectric constant is related to the electronic susceptance in an isotropic material.  The susceptance is basically the ratio of polarization to applied electric field.  You can think about a conductor as having "bound" electrons in that they  cannot leave the entire material, but are free to polarize across the  entire length of a conductor.  When you apply an external electric field to a conductor, you polarize  the entire conductor, such that the polarization causes the electric  field inside the conductor to be zero (electrostatic equilibrium). In a  normal dielectric, the bound electrons cannot move as far as in a  conductor, they have a much smaller polarization.  The definition of a dipole moment is charge separation times separation distance.  In a conductor, the induced dipoles have distances of the magnitude of  the size of the macroscopic object, which is much much larger than the  dipole distances of a dielectric.  Hence, the polarization vectors in a conductor are nearly infinite  compared to the polarization vectors of a dielectric (whose order of  magnitude we are accustomed to dealing with). The susceptance is  therefore near infinite, and so is the relative permittivity.

All the best.
