An electrical conductor is a substance that permits electrons to flow through it easily. Most metals are good conductors. In contrast, insulators are strongly resistant to any flow of electrons. Semiconductors can be controlled in their conductivity, to be either "on" or "off" depending upo…n other factors - such as the polarity and size of the voltage applied to them - and are thus very useful in electronics circuits.

This seems like a question from an electrical course, and is probably best answered by your course materials.. It's your test question, not ours, and there won't always be someone to ask the answer of. Earn your diploma.
Conductors of electricity are materials that let electricity pass through them. A good conductor of electricity is something that allows electricity to flow smoothly. Some conductors include silver, copper, gold, aluminum, and calcium.
is mercury a good conductor is mercury a good conductor is mercury a good conductor yes, it is. it is a good conductor of both heat and electricity.
yes it is. search it on google "chlorine electrical conductor". yes it is. search it on google "chlorine electrical conductor"
silver is the best conductor since it's Conductivity = 6.3e7/ohm-m which is the highest of any metal.
It isn't--although if you wet felt with saltwater or other electrolyte it is useful for some purposes. **if you get anything wet, it can be a conductor :P
yes,steel is a metal and all metals are good conductors of electricity no you are wrong their not every metal is a good conductor yes every metal is a conductor but not all are good conductor.
well if the empirical formula of blood is, from my source C 738 H 1166 N 812 O 203S2 Fe their is not enough (Fe) iron ions for blood to be even a half decent conductor.
No. Lithium is a conductor of electricit but it is not a fairly good one.
Platinum is a good conductor of electricity as it`s a metal because metals are good conductors of electricity.
Conductors are substances that allow flow of electricity through them. Although some electricity is lost in the form of heat, yet is negligible. Eg: silver gold copper iron Semiconductors are elements that allow electricity partially. For example they allow 50 percent and stops the rest. Eg: silico…n germanium (MORE)
An electrical insulator is a material that resists electric current, and will not allow it to flow easily. Examples include glass and most ceramics. An electrical conductor is a material that offers very little resistance to electric current, allowing it to flow freely and easily. Most metals mak…e excellent electrical conductors. (MORE)
An insulator would be something that prevents the flow of electrical current. An example would be rubber. A conductor would be something that allows the flow of current. For example, electrical wire (normally copper or almn)
Conductor of electricity are compounds that allow electricity to pass through. They are metallic and sometimes ductile and malleable. Very common is iron. The most metallic element is francium.
Diamond is one example. In fact it has on of the highest thermal conductivity coefficients measured to date while generally being an electrical insulator.
since iron is a metal and most metals are good conductors of electricity one can assume that iron is a fair conductor of electricity. The electrical conductivity of iron is approx. 1/6 from the electrical conductivity of silver (the best known conductor).
Yes, as are all other living organisms. They aren't as good at conducting electricity as metals but they do conduct.
The substances that do not conduct electricity are called electrical insulators while those which conduct electricity are called conductors.
No slate does not conduct electricity as it is an insulator. It can also be used as an insulating medium in electric circuits. Syam (Anand,Gujarat)
rubber, plastics? usually almost all the non-metals(with the exception of carbon, carbon conducts electricity) EDIT: CARBON as in the element itself (C) covalent compounds of carbon usually cannot conduct electricity e.g. Carbon Tetrachloride (CCl4) dry air also cannot conduct electricity.
Note: "electricity" is not conducted, only electrical current (the flow of electrons) is. Electricity is the field that covers all things electrical. The wood in a pencil is an insulator. If it is wet, it is a poorer insulator, but only a poor conductor. The carbon (lead) in the pencil is a poor …conductor. The metal holding the eraser is a good conductor. The rubber eraser is a poor conductor. You really have to address the conductivity of specific substances, not items that are build from a variety of substances. (MORE)
This depends on the type of foam. There have been made foam that actually conduct electricity. This is a choice made in the manufacturing of the foam. Most foam in mattresses and the like does not conduct electricity. Moisture however can change the mattresses conductivity drastically.
Sure. All metals - and metal alloys, such as bronze - are fairly good conductors of electricity. .
Nonmetals and covalent compounds are not good conductors of electricity because in these substances no free electrons are present for conductivity
No. It does not conduct electricity at all. However, it gets staticly charged enough to shock humans on touch though.
a laser IS NOT a electricity source its a light source and no its not that good as conductor of electricity
Mica has such poor electrical conductivity that it has often beenused as an insulator. The resistivity of mica ranges from 1x10^12to 2x10^14 Î©/cm depending on the type of mica. For reference,copper, a good conductor, has a resistivity of only 1.68Ã10^â8 Î©/mor 1.68x10^-10 Î©/cm. no, i…t is an insulator. (MORE)
Pure distilled water is not a good conductor of electricity. It is the impurities in water (usually salts) that conduct electricity. In fact, the conductivity of a sample of water can be used to measure the concentration of salts in the water sample.
Bromine is a gas at liquid temperature. It can only conduct electricity when bonded with another metal or element.
Earth can conduct electricity but not as good a wires. Its resistance depends on the kind of the ground , how far is one point from the other where you measure the resistance, the moisture, and other factors. So, i think it's a conductor ______________________________________________________________…___________ Strange question.... Since the surface of the earth is mostly covered in water and water is a good conductor of electricity I'd say it's a conductor. (MORE)
NO! Although its no, every conductor has resistance that blocks little current and dissipates in the form of heat. Its negligible in conductor. Eg: silver has lowest resistance compared to iron
No Nitrogen is a non-metal an is therefore a poor conductor of electricity because there is no where for the electrons to flow and there are no free electrons
yes if it has some other contaminants mixed in it like in case of water. if it is pure snow, then I'm not sure. - L.ds
Most natural fabrics are poor conductors of electricity and they can build up static charge. Linen is made from flax and it is, relatively speaking, a better conductor of electricity than many other fabrics. It shows less tendency to build up static electric charge. It is, however, still much less c…onducting than a metal. (MORE)
Water is an electricity conductor because: - extremely pure water is difficult to obtain and store - hydrolysis of water lead to ions H + and OH -
Diamond is made up of pure carbon. In the structure of diamond one carbon atom is attached to four other carbon atoms forming a covalent bond. All the electrons of each carbon atom is shared and the octet rule is satisfied. Hence no free electron is left for the conductance of electricity.
In order for it to lose its effect you have to put an insulator around it, such as rubber or plastic.
All four valanced electron of each carbon atom involves in formation of covalent bond living no free electron to conduct electricity under influnce of electric field thats why diamond is bad conductor of heat and electricity
A: Silver actually but not too desirable because it has the tendency to tarnish with oxygen
A diamond is a superior conductor of thermal energy (heat). It's better at this than anything else we know of. But diamond is a poor conductor of electricity. It's actually a pretty good insulator.
Pure iron is the best conductor of electricity in the currentworld. It transmits up to eight million electrons per minutethrough a gauge of 10mm. Pure iron can conduct electricity betterthan copper and can harvest electricity, although it would have tohave added allotropes for that to happen.
Methane is a covalent molecule and does not break into ions (which are responsible to conduct the electricity between two electrodes) so methane is non conductor.
It conducts electricity,means flow of electrons.Electrons will flow only in metals where as in conductors.
in 1729, Stephen Gray, an English physicist, found that some substances could carry electricity from one location to another. These substances were called conductors.
Yes , because it has water in it , and waters conductive. So if youdrop saliva on a motherboard cpu , it wont work because it isconducing electricity
Because it doesn't have enough hydraulics for the electricity to pass through so the electricity contact with the atoms is bad. that's why... your welcome!
Iodine, either in its solid state or dissolved in alcohol, is not a conductor of electricity.
Electrical conductivity is 6.7 Ms/m (mega-siemens / metre) which isapproximately the same as 1010 carbon steel. Technetium, cooled toa few degrees above absolute zero, becomes a superconductor. Pleasesee the links.
In a conductor, electric current can flow freely, in an insulatorit cannot. Metals such as copper typify conductors, while most non-metallic solids aresaid to be good insulators, having extremely high resistance to theflow of charge through them.
