  1. Mar 15, 2008 #1
    the field inside a conductor is zero therefore
    A. the potential inside the conductor is zero
    B. the potential cannot be zero
    C. The potential inside the conductor is the same as the potential just outside the conductor (on the surface)
    D. the potential inside the conductor cannot be defined if the field is zero
    E. none of the above is true


    I dont get this question. help with this or give me some idea abt it....

    Start by asking yourself what is the definition of the Electric Field in terms of the Electric Potential?
