Electricity

Conductors, Semiconductors, and Insulators

Conductors

A conductor is a material which permits a flow of energy. A material which allows the flow of charged particles is an electrical conductor. It freely allows the flow of electrons with very little resistance.

Semiconductor

Semiconductors are materials that do not allow electors to flow freely but don’t directly stop them either. More resistance than conductors, less resistance than Insulators.



A good example of a Semiconductor is silicone (used in computers chips).

Insulators

Greatly impede or stop the flow of electrons with very high resistance. It prevents you from getting chocked.


Conections

If you pay close attention they are all connected they all are about keeping or letting go of energy. Is pretty much what they are all about they are all also somehow connected with resistance.
