conductors

A conductor is a substance, body, or device that readily conducts heat, electricity, sound.


Example: conductors are copper, aluminum, gold, and silver. Some common insulators are glass, air, plastic, rubber, and wood.

semiconductors

A semiconductor is a substance, as silicon or germanium, with electrical conductivity intermediate between that of an insulator and a conductor.


Example: semiconductor materials are germanium, selenium, and silicon.

Isulators

An insulator is an insulating material, often glass or porcelain, in a unit form designed so as to support a charged conductor and electrically isolate it.


Example: common insulators are glass, air, plastic, rubber, and wood.

The difference between Conductors, Semiconductors, and Insulators

A conductor conducts heat and transports heat like metal, Semiconductors are substances so objects don't heat, An insulator supports a charged conductor. This is the difference between Conductors, Semiconductors, and Insulators.
