Electricity

By: Sammyia Ansari

Vocabulary

Conductor - Are materials that can freely allow the flow of electrons with very little resistance.

Semiconductors - Are materials that do not allow electors to flow freely but do not directly stop them either.

Insulators - Are materials that greatly impede or stop the flow of electrons with very high resistance.

Real world example

Conductors - Iron.Water,Copper

Semiconductors - Silicon (Used in computer chips)

Insulators - Glass, Dry Air, Rubber


Comparing and Contrasting

Conductors,Semiconductors,and Insulators are all alike because they all have something to do with how electricity works.Conductors let electrons to flow freely with very little resistance,While Semiconductors don't allow the electrons to move freely but also don't stop them completely. Insulators on the other hand impede or stop the flow of electrons with very high resistance.
