Toward Paradoxical Inconsistency in Electrostatics of Metallic Conductors
In a recent report, we drew attention to the paradoxical inconsistency of classical electrostatics with the model of a crystalline conductor. There are different ways to avoid this inconsistency. Mostly, they rely on physical ad hoc assumptions associated with the introduction of additional constants and models of charged liquids. In this report, we suggest another approach, which does not require the introduction of any additional physical constants. The proposed theory includes classical electrostatics as a special case.
