What I know so far: - Charges (electrons) inside a conductor will repel (Coulomb's law). - The charges will experience repulsion which results in maximum separation distances between the charges. - The charges will then redistribute along the surface of the conductor in order to achieve electrostatic equilibrium (ie. net force of zero on each charge) - Thus, no electric field exists inside the conductor.
Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong in any of the above statements.
Appreciate the help. Thanks.
