Conductor and Insulators

ConductorsConductors are made of materials that electricity can flow through easily. Some examples of conductors: Copper, Aluminum, Platinum, Gold

InsulatorsInsulators are materials opposite of conductors. The atoms are not easily freed and block the flow of electricity.Examples of insulators: Glass, wood, plastic, rubber

REMEMBER

Rubber or Plastic

Do you ever wonder why electrical cords arecovered in rubber or plastic? The rubber or plastic on an electrical cordprovides an insulator for the wires.By covering the wires, the electricity cannot go through the rubber and is forced to follow the path on the aluminum or copper wires.

Conductors and Insulators

In a conductor, electric current can flow freely, in an insulator it cannot.
