Electricity

Conductors

Conductors are materials that freely allow the flow of electrons with very little resistance.

For example: Water, copper, iron are examples of conductors because they all need little resistance and they water, copper, and iron flow freely because of the flow of electrons.

Semiconductors

Semiconductors are materials that do not allow electors to flow freely but do not directly stop them either.

For example silicon, graphite (a form of carbon), germanium, and gallium arsenide phosphide seen as the little plates inside the clear plastic LED.

Insulators

Insulators are materials that greatly impede or stop the flow of electrons with very high resistance.

For example: Metals such as copper typify conductors, while most non-metallic solids are said to be good insulators, having extremely high resistance to the flow of charge through them.

Conductors, Semiconductors, Insulators

In conclusion, Conductors, semiconductors, and insulators are all similar to one another because they all play a role when it comes to electricity. For example conductors plays the role as freely allowing to flow because of electrons with very little resistance. Semiconductors plays the role as not allowing electors to flow freely but do not directly stop them either. And insulators plays the role as stopping the flow of electrons with very high resistance. Conductors, semiconductors, and insulators are all very different from one another because conductors, semiconductors, and insulators all play a different role when it comes to electricity.
