Electricity

Conductor

A conductor is an object or type of material that allows the flow of electrical current in one or more directions.

Semiconductor

A semiconductor is a solid substance that has conductivity between that of an insulator and that of most metals either due to the addition of an impurity or because of temperature effects.

Insulator

An insulator is a material whose internal electric charges do not flow freely.

Comparing and Contrasting Statements

The conductivity of a conductor is very high while the conductivity of a insulator is very low and the conductivity of a semiconductor is moderate. It's the same with the resistivity. There is not really any similarities between all of these.

Daily Life Examples

• You can find the term insulator in your daily life because many things have insulators for example any type of cables have insulators to keep the electricity inside.

• You can find the term conductor in your daily life because we have wires and wires are conductors.
