3 Properties of Conductors in Electrostatic Equilibrium (8:48)
Learn 3 of the 4 things you need to remember about conductors in electrostatic equilibrium, including that the electric field inside is zero, excess charges are located on the surface, and the electric field just outside the surface is perpendicular and proportional to the local surface charge density. Gain a deeper understanding with examples and calculations using Gauss’s law.
