- Charge inside conductor 1 answer
So I know that when you put some charge inside a counter, it resides uniformly on the surface of the conductor in order to make the electric field zero everywhere inside the conductor..
But what if I place a charge in such a way that I make it stationary inside the conductor (let it be a spherical conductor), will there be an electric field inside coming out of the charge (assuming its positive) or will something happen to prevent it? And if something happens to prevent it can you please explain to me the process of how it works
The spherical conductor is hollow and the charge I put inside it (let's say its in a random place other than the center) is stationary
