Electrical conductors can be classified as either ohmic or non-ohmic based on how they respond to resistance. Because ohmic conductors have a constant resistance over a wide range of applied voltages, the voltage placed across them directly affects how much current overflows through them. The resistance of non- Ohmic conductors varies with the applied voltage, and the current flowing through them isn't commensurable to the voltage. Read this article to find out more about Ohmic and Non-Ohmic Conductors and how they are different from each other. What are Ohmic Conductors? Ohmic conductors are useful in electrical circuits and systems that ... Read More

Both conductors and insulators are extensively used in various fields of electrical and electronics engineering. In this article, we will compare and contrast the various features of conductors and insulators and how they function.What is a Conductor?The material which allows the electric current to pass through it is known as conductor. In other words, the material which has less than 4 electrons in its outermost shell is known as conductor.When electric potential is applied across a conductor, the electrons can freely move from atom to atom. In a conductor, the valance band and the conduction band are overlapped each other. ... Read More
