Question

If
a conductor is placed in s uniform electric field described by the
vector E = (10 N/C) i, what is the field produced by the
arrangement of free electric charge within the conductor?

Answer #2

There will be no electric field inside the conductor because by gauss law it is proved that conductor does not have any type of electric field inside it.

This illustration shows a spherical conductor in static equilibrium with an originally uniform electric field. Free charges move within the conductor, polarizing it, until the electric field lines are perpendicular to the surface. The field lines end on excess negative charge on one section of the surface and begin again on excess positive charge on the opposite side. No electric field exists inside the conductor, since free charges in the conductor would continue moving in response to any field until it was neutralized.

In the case of a uniform electric field and a flat surface, the
electric flux is defined as the dot product of the electric field
and the area, where the direction of the area is the normal to the
area pointing out of a closed region.
