When looking at the E field in a circuit, we usually find something like the images below (from here). This is with an idealized circuit, with idealized (0 resistance) wires linked by a resistor. I wonder what the same pictures would look like with real (non 0 resistance) wires? I think it would be the same, except that now there would also be a E field inside the wires. Is this correct ? However the pictures above do not show any E field inside the resistor, that seems strange to me. I'm ignoring any transient state.
