Electricity

Daily Life

In my daily life I use all of these materials and so do most people. I use conductors to cook food or heat something. I use semiconductors because clothes are made of cotton. Lastly I use insulators such as cups or bowls made of glass.

Conductor

a material that electric current can easily move through, such as metals

Semiconductor

substances that have more resistance than an insulator but less than a conductor.

Insulator

a material that electric current cannot move easily through such as air, plastic, glass, and rubber.

Compare and Contrast

These materials are similar because energy can move throw them however they are different because energy moves through them at different paces. Energy moves fastest through the conductor, then the cotton and lastly in the glass cup the energy would move the slowest through.
