When charged particles move through a hollow conducting cylinder, they change the charge distribution on the surface of the cylinder. So, I was wondering if there would be some resistance against the movement of the charged particles.Partly, also because the change in the surface charge density is not instantaneous.
This thought popped in my mind when I was wondering whether charged particles moving through a hollow conductor interact with the surface charge distribution? By this, I mean would the surface charge density exert a force on the charged particles moving through the conductor?
- So, to sum it all up, if there were charged particles passing through a hollow conductor, would there be any resistance against their movement? and would the surface charge distribution of a conductor exert a force on the charges. (There is an electric field outside the conductor)
