**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

Is it possible to create an electric field such that a neutral conductor will experience a net electric field inside?

**2. Relevant equations**

**3. The attempt at a solution**

The definition of perfect conductor is that there are an infinite amount of charges free to move so that electric fields will cancel on the inside. How about the case for the not ideal conductor? Will there be a point where the electric field is so strong that the finite amount of free charge to distribute will not cancel it on the inside of the conductor? What are such examples in the physical world?
