Electricity

Conductor

Materials that freely allow the flow of electrons with very little resistance.

Semi-Conductors

Materials that do not allow electors to flow freely, but do not directly stop them. Semi-conductors have more resistance than conductors, but less resistance than insulators.

Insulators

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

Comparing and Contrasting Conductors, Semiconductors, and Insulators.

A conductor is similar to a semiconductor because they both allow allow electors to flow through them. But they are different because they conductors let electors flow freely, but semiconductors don't let them flow freely but they stop them completely.


A semiconductor is similar to an insulator because they both can stop electors from flowing. But they are different because semiconductors still let electors flow somehwhat, while insulators stop them completely.


An insulator is not similar to a conductor at all. These terms are the exact opposite.

How do I find each term in my daily life?

Conductors are in my daily life since I use batteries and water.


Semiconductors are in my daily life since I use a computer chip for my computer.


Insulators are in my daily life since I use glass and rubber.
