Dielectric permittivity of 1 and polarization

  • #1

Homework Statement


in a homework problem we have a spherical dielectric shell with permittivity of 1 [like a vacuum. inside are charges that are released and we have to say what the charge distribution will look like later. if the dielectric can be polarized, i know what the charges will do. but i think the permittivity of 1 means there is no polarization, and therefore the charges will distribute themselves throughout the space as far from each other as possible. is this correct?
