Conductors

- Conductors are materials that freely allow the flow of electrons with very little resistance, examples are water, copper, and iron

Semiconductors

  • Do not allow electrons to flow freely but do not directly stop them either more resistance than conductors but less resistance than insulators

Insulators

insulators are materials that greatly impede or stop the flow of electrons with very high resistance


Conductors

Real world examples: Copper,water, and the human body

Semiconductors

Real world examples:cotton, wool, and paper

Insulators

Real world examples: wood, rubber, and glass

Compare and contrast

Insulators and semiconductors are the same because the do not stop or let the electrons flow freely.
