field inside conductor-is it zero every where?? consider a perfectly spherical neutral conductor.suppose a few electrons with net charge q is deposited on it.the electrons will spread out[due to mutual repulsion] and distribute themselves in such a way that the net field inside the sphere is zero.i can understand that at the exact centre of the sphere the fields of individual electrons will cancel each other out.but as one moves away from the centre and towards the centre,the net field by electrons on the side of the surface TOWARDS WHICH we are moving will exert a stronger field than the side FROM WHICH we are moving away.in effect, the field[negative] will grow stronger and stronger as we move towards the surface. doesn't this mean that field is not zero anywhere in the sphere except the exact centre?? and what about surfaces that are not spherical.for eg,if i am sitting inside the frame of a car[with all non-conducting parts removed] and the car is struck by lightning,will i be feeling zero electrical field at every point on my body??
