It depends on what kind of insulators you are referring to. The ultimate purpose of an insulator, regardless of application, is to prevent or impair the conduction of energy.
Thermal insulation works primarily by trapping pockets of air in a cohesive layer of material (fiberglass or foam, usually) to prevent the movement and conduction of heat.
Sound/Vibration insulation can be similar to Thermal insulation, but can also make use of elastic or absorptive materials, like rubber or springs, that absorb sound and vibrations, again, to prevent the conduction of energy.
Electrical insulation is usually accomplished by using non-electrically conductive materials, like glass, some ceramics, some rubbers and plastics, to coat or isolate whichever electrical conductor is in question. This prevents the electrical energy from being conducted to undesirable locations.
Electrical insulators work by inhibiting the transmissions of electric current. Rubber is considered to be among the best electric insulators.
they are insulators
Examples of insulators are things such as plastic, glass, cloth. Metals are not insulators
the same way an insulator and a conductor will work with out the electron theory!
The Opposite of insulators is conductors
There are plenty of examples of insulators. Insulators can be as simple as air or as complex as mixed fiberglass.
Insulators in electricity can be glass or ceramic.Insulators in heating can be polystyrene or fibre panels.
humans are not insulators, but are conductors!
name me 5 insulators
Insulators is a plural noun.
Yes. You need both conductors and insulators to work with electricity. Conductors such as wires provide a path for electricity to move where it is needed and insulators prevent electricity from dissipating, from being where it is not supposed to be and where it can cause harm and damage.
Insulators will have a higher resistance.
Insulators are conductors
insulators. All the insulators. Like fabrics
They are moderately good insulators.
Insulators are materials that prevent electrical flow.
No, insulators and non conductive.
The Insulators in a torch is the rubber. I think.
Plastics are a good electrical insulators because they are insulators. Electricity could not pass through them unlike copper. Another good example of insulators is rubber.
The materials which are the best insulators are ones that do not conduct heat. The common insulators are made from rubber and other plastics.
I know tree insulators Plastic, Wood and glass
Good conductors are poor insulators.
conduction or insulators. i would pick insulators.
name the 3 insulators of electricity
