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
