Main Question or Discussion Point
Do both conductors and insulators allow electric fields through and why?
The electrons in a conductor are free to move. If there were an electric field, the electrons would accelerate. The only way for a conductor to be at equilibrium is for the electric field to be 0.hey! Isnt that all about faradays cage is the principle under gaussians law, and by the way why conductors dont allow electric field pass through as the insulators do?
