- Conductors are materials that freely allow the flow of electrons with very little resistance.
- Examples of conductors would be things like: Water, Copper, Iron.
- Semiconductors are materials that do not allow electors to flow freely but do not directly stop them either. Semiconductors have more resistance than conductors but less resistance than insulators.
- Examples of semiconductors are things like: Silicon (used in computer chips)
↪Compare and Contrast↩
Insulators stop the flow of energy with very high resistance unlike conductors and semiconductors.
♻Real World Examples ♻
Semiconductor~ A dam lets water flow but at a certain rate and it will also be a insulator at time and not let water flow at all.
Insulator~ A pipe keeps water flowing through it.
