If we have a conductor of which is not an equipotential , then there will be an electric field inside it. the result would be a continual redistribution of the charges in the conductor until the internal field was reduced to zero.so WHY this redistribution occurs? and is it called the RELAXATION TIME ?
when it is not equipotential then free electrons are attracted towards the higher potential due to this there is redistribution.
