Problem 25RQ

Why is there no electric field at the center of a charged spherical conductor?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 25RQ Because the mutual repulsion, mobile electrons in the conductor will spread out uniformly over the outer surface of the ball, so the force and the field on a test charge at the center is zero because opposing forces balance in every direction.

Step 2 of 3
