Electricity

Conductor

A material that electric current can easily move through, such as metals. Conductors are very different from insulators because insulators are designed to keep current from moving through them easily, if it all. An example of a conductor is copper, and it is used in wires so the electricity can flow through.

semiconductor

Substances that have more resistance than an insulator but less than a conductor. Semiconductors are in between conductors and insulators. They allow some electricity to flow through while blocking off others. An example on an semiconductor is silicon. You use a semi conductor to use a computer.

Insulator

A material that electric current cannot move easily through such as air, plastic, glass, and rubber. An insulator is the opposite to a conductor because, insulators are designed to not let much electricity pass through. An insulator example is power lines.
