An object or type of material that allows the flow of electrical current
Has a conductivity between an insulator and a Conductor.
Stops flow of electric currents.
Comparing and Contrasting
Conductors let currents through with little to no resistance, and Insulators stop electrical currents and make them weak. Semiconductors are in between.
Conductor - Copper, aluminum, gold, and silver
Semiconductor - Silicon, selenium, and germanium.
Insulator - Plastics, Styrofoam, paper, and rubber.
Conductors are used in all cords I use to charge electronics.
A Semiconductor can be water and I drink water.
Insulators are also a part of all the cords we use the rubbery outside that stops the current.
