I have a strong uniform electric field which is produced by a conductive sphere with high voltage electricity running to it. I know that the voltage diminishes proportional to 1/r where r is a distance equal to the radius of the sphere. If I where to place a conductive object in this field parallel to the electric field lines there will be a difference in voltage on either end of the object because of the difference in distance from the field source. Will this difference in voltage force a current to flow and accumulate in the object? Even if itís not grounded? How would I measure the amount of charge?
Re: will a current flow in an object that is in an electric field?
