Asked in Chemistry, Science, Physics
What non metal objects conduct electricity?
Only eighteen elements in the periodic table are generally considered nonmetals, compared to over eighty metals. Although nonmetals are generally poor conductors of heat and electricity when compared to metals, many of them still can conduct electricity. The metalloid elements (such as Silicon and Germanium) can conduct electricity and are used as semiconductors in electronics. Many generally nonmetal compounds (composed of nonmetals) can also conduct electricity, with gallium arsenide, and silicon carbide being popular components in semiconductors as well. ...
