electrc field inside charged solid

posted by .

how can electric field exist inside a uniform charge solid... when by gauss law electric field is zero inside a conductor

  • electrc field inside charged solid -

    Not all solids are conductors. A "uniformly charged" solid has a constant charge density throughout the volume, and is not a conductor.
