Electricity ⚡

Marcella Lewis

Conductor:

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

Semiconductor:

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.

Insulator:

Materials that greatly impede or stop the flow of electors with very high resistance.

Comparing & Contrasting:

Semiconductors and Insulators both have more resistance than conductors, but semiconductors have less resistance than insulators. Therefore, the resistance from least to greatest would be conductor ➡ semiconductor ➡ insulator.

Example of These Terms In My Everyday Life:

In my everyday life, an example of a conductor is my pool. This is in my everyday life because I swim in it often and it is a conductor because when it's storming, you are not supposed to swim in it because the electricity from the lightning goes through the water easily. An example of a semiconductor is a computer chip. This is in my everyday life because I use a computer everyday whether it's my school computer, my phone, tablet, etc. An example of of an insulator is a window. This is in my everyday life because there are windows everywhere I go and it is very hard for electricity to go through it.
