Electric field lines

  • #1
sir, we know that the electric field lines are perpendicular to the surface of the conductor ,it means charges are rest on the surface of the conductor ,there is no work done.
if we create an electric field such that the electric field lines are at a different angle to the surface of the conductor then charges are automatically move on the surface.
i want to know that it id possible or not? sir, please give me a sufficient answer about this topic.
thank you.

Sure, turn the conductor =D

If that's not what you mean, then perhaps you mean the field generated by the charges on the conductor. What happens if you change the density? So I move, say, the negative charges to one end? What is across the conductor if that's the case? What does that generate?
