Textbook Problem

Explain why, under static conditions, all points in a conductor must be at the same electric potential.

To determine
Why under static conditions, all points in the conductor must be at same electric potential.

Explanation

The electric field within the conductor is always zero. The electric field and potential are related as,

E=V

  • V is the electric potential.

At the static situation, all the free electrons in the conductor don’t move. This is because the electrons are at same potential due to zero electric field within the conductor
