Q 1.28     (a)   A conductor A with a cavity as shown in Figure a is given a charge Q. Show that the entire charge must appear on the outer surface of the conductor.

                        

Answers (1)

We know that electric field inside a conductor is zero.

Using Gauss' law, if we draw any imaginary closed surface inside the solid, net charge must be zero.(Since E= 0 inside)

Hence there cannot be any charge inside the conductor and  therefore, all charge must appear on the outer surface of the conductor.
