A spherical conductor has a spherical cavity in its interior. The cavity is not centered on the center of the conductor. If a positive charge is placed on the conductor, the electric field in the cavity
A. points generally toward the outer surface of the conductor.
B. points generally away from the outer surface of the conductor.
C. is zero.
The Attempt at a Solution
I'm thinking it should be C. A conductor has to have a net charge of 0 inside, so if you place a positive charge inside of the cavity, then the negative charges will be outside of the cavity. Therefore, the electric field could flow from the positive to the negative and I think the net electric field in the cavity would be zero.
Any confirmation or denial would be great.
Thanks in advanced.
