This simple model explains reasonably well the behavior of conductors that is observed experimentally on a macroscopic scale. The free-electron gas model of a perfect conductor has interesting consequences. First, it implies that a perfect conductor cannot sustain an internal electric field if charges are at rest. Consider a static electric field applied via a voltage source to an isolated conducting block having a net charge of zero, as shown in Fig. 1. The externally applied electric field causes the free electrons in the conductor to move about until they reach a region where the total perceived electric field V + – – – – – – + + + + + Figure 1.
