All metals for example iron, copper, nickel. They are called conductors. Plastics and other elements do not, only metals. They allow electricity to pass through them because they have free electrons

What materials allow heat to pass through and electricity?

metals have the ability to pass and conduct electricity and heat through them....


How are superconductors different from insulators?

Superconductors are materials that let current or electricity pass through them. Insulators are materials that don't allow current or electricity to pass through them. Superconductors are mostly all metals. Insulators are wood, plastic, and paper.


What differentiates insulators and conductors?

insulators do not allow electricity to pass through them whereas conductors allow electricity to pass through them.


What material does not allow light to pass through it?

Opaque materials do not allow light to pass through them.


What type of material always lets light pass through it?

Transparent materials will always allow light to pass through, translucent materials will allow light to pass through as well but the light rays will be scattered. Opaque materials will not allow any light to pass through.


Materials that allow electricity to pass through them also allow water to pass through them is this is right or wrong?

Wrong. Water will pass through paper but low voltage electrity will not. Electricity will pass through copper and other metals, but water will not. Water is a good conductor of electricity but so is steel and copper. However water will not pass through them unless they are in the form of tubing In the UK pipework (Gas and Water) in properties should be earthed to protect against electrocution.


What is the difference between conduct and insulate?

Insulation is keeping the heat inside, trapping it and not letting out. Conduction is letting a flow, such as electricity, pass through the material. for example, metal is a wonderful conductor of heat and electricity, but a bad insulator. However, wool is a good insulator and a bad conductor. :) hope that helps!
