materials that freely allow the flow of electrons with very little resistance.
materials that do not allow electrons to flow freely, but do not directly stop them.
Material that greatly impede or stop the flow of electrons with very high resistance.
Compare and Contrast
Conductors, semiconductors, and Insulators all do something to the flow of electrons. Conductors have very little resistance. Semiconductors have a medium amount of resistance. Insulators have very high resistance.
