When placed in an electric field, a conductor has induced charges and a dielectric has bound charges. When there's no net bound charge density in the bulk of the dielectric, bound charges stay on the surface only, like induced charges in conductors. In Maxwell's eqs, the induced charges are categorized as free charges but bound charges aren't.
When a dielectric has an infinite dielectric constant, the dielectric degenerates into a conductor. But can the bound charges also be degenerated into induced charges?
