The relative permittivity and hence absolute permittivity of a conductor is infinity. Now coulomb force between two point charges is inversely proportional to the permittivity of the medium between the two charges.
- Then does this mean if two point charges are separated by a conductor then coulomb force between two point charges is zero?
- When charge is given to a conductor at a point inside the conductor, the charges get distributed on the surface to experience minimum repulsion.According to the first case if the force is zero, then the charges should not experience any repulsion and should remain at the point where they are given. So at what point am i going wrong. Please Explain.
