Electric Field inside a conductor

  1. Feb 12, 2005 #1
    How come the electric field inside a conductor is equal to 0?

    How do you explain with Gauss's Law?

    What are the requirements for an electric field to be present? A brand new battery sitting on a countertop--is there an e-field sitting at the top and bottom of the battery?
