Electric field strength in metal sphere

  1. Apr 26, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Why is there no electric field strength in a metal sphere? Is it because the sum of the individial electric field strength of the charges in the sphere is zero? How is that possible?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Induced charges on the metal sphere make it possible.
